Road Trip to Minute Maid Park

This is the ballpark with the hill in the outfield, and a retractable roof but with big glass windows on the sides, so light comes in. Minute Maid has a variety of architectural features that don't necessarily work together, but then, Houston has basically no definitive architectural style, so it makes sense. Seats are fine. Good points for hot dogs, barbeque. Rather limited beer selection. Rumor has it there's no orange juice sold in the park. You can get here by public transportation but they drive cars in Houston. Maybe now with higher gas prices??
