Minute Maid Park
Inaugurated in 2000, the Minute Maid Park is built on what was the Union Train Station. To pay respect to the once very busy train station, the park used the Union Station as the main entrance, while the train and train tracks can be seen at the left side of the field. Now, this site is flocked by more than 40,000 Houston Astros fans to watch Major League Baseball games. Every time an Astros player hit a homerun, the train at the left field will run along the tracks adding excitement to the spectators.
