About Stadium

An open-air ballpark located in downtown Houston, Texas, Minute Maid Park is the home of Major League Baseball’s Houston Astros franchise.

The park was originally named The Ballpark at Union Station and then changed to Enron Field, and again to Astros Field, before settling on its current name.

The stadium has a retractable roof attached, making it the first retractable-roof in a Houston sports venue.
