As the season opens, the Astros are led by right-handed hurler Brett Myers. However the season ends, fans will be able to experience world-class athleticism and outfield-wall-scaling robberies in one of the nation's finest home-run habitats and fastball farms—Minute Maid Park. Built in 2000, the park boasts a natural-grass outdoor field, a 242-foot-high retractable roof, a distinctive center-field tornado, and a troll-guarded infield. Field-box seating treats fans to some of the best seats in the house, as well as unobstructed views of relievers forming sweat-filled moats around the pitching mound and managers hand-signaling Chinese delivery-menu items to base runners.
Note on Ticketmaster fees: You'll get the same percentage off the convenience charge, but you'll still need to pay the full Ticketmaster processing fee, the optional printing-at-home fee, and tax. Ain't no discounts on tax.
