Minute Maid Park
Minute Maid Park, in downtown Houston, TX, is the location of the home stadium for the Houston Astros. Since the gates opened to the public for the first regular season game on April 7th, 2000 fans have flocked to this venue to see their beloved Astros compete for a chance at baseball immortality in the form of a World Series championship. Fulfilling that dream in 2017, the Houston faithful cheered on their team throughout the series and continue to support their heroes.
History meets innovation in this one of a kind ballpark as the stadium was constructed around the historic Union Station which now houses the ballpark’s main lobby as well as some Astros offices. Now a batter-friendly ballpark, this magnificent structure can be completely closed with a retractable roof and air-conditioned to battle the brutal Texas heat.

Established in 1962 and settling on the team name Houston Astros in 1964, this team spent 51 years in the National League before making the leap to the American League in 2013. The Astros moniker derives from Houston’s position at the center of the NASA space program. In all of their time in MLB Baseball, this team had one lone pennant to show for it, coming in the 2005 season. Their first trip to the World Series resulted in a sweep by the Chicago White Sox. However, that would all change in 2017.
Following a similar path to the Chicago Cubs during their latest rebuild, the results would launch the Houston Astros to a season record of 101-61, earning them first place in the AL West and punching their ticket to the postseason. Facing off against the intimidating Boston Red Sox in the ALDS, Houston came out strong to bounce the team from Beantown in four games.
A series to remember would follow, as the Astros faced the New York Yankees in the ALCS. Behind the pitching of Dallas Kuechel and Justin Verlander, Houston jumped out to a 2-0 lead before losing the next three games at Yankee Stadium. Returning home and facing elimination, Verlander took to the mound again and pitched a beauty, going seven scoreless innings en route to a 6-1 victory, setting up an all or nothing seventh game. Charlie Morton got the start and the team never looked back. Going five scoreless innings before handing it off to Lance McCullers to close it out, the pitching duo blanked the Yanks to win game seven 4-0 and capture their second pennant in team history.
No stranger to postseason adversity at this point, the Astros headed into the Fall Classic against a Los Angeles Dodgers team that had won 104 games in the regular season and had only lost one playoff game. A tough 3-1 loss in game one had everyone a little nervous, but the team came back strong to win games two and three to take control of the series before losing game four, tying it back up again. In their last game at Minute Maid Park for 2017, the Astros outlasted the Dodgers with an exciting 13-12 win in extra innings. The Dodgers would win game six at home, once again putting the Astros in a game seven scenario. In the biggest game of their lives, the Houston Astros left everything out on the field at Dodger Stadium and emerged victorious, outlasting LA to win game seven by a score of 5-1.
Finally champions of baseball, the Houston Astros made it to the top of the MLB. Inspired throughout the season by the toughness and resilience of their hometown in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the Astros gave back to Houston in the form of something that everyone could celebrate, a World Series title.
Two years removed, this squad was largely still intact. A regular season record of 107-55 was the best in team history and earned them their third consecutive AL West title. Breezing past the Cleveland Indians in the ALDS and then the Yankees in the ALCS, Houston found themselves back in the World Series. A hard-fought seven game series against the Nationals ended with Washington’s first World Series title.
More disappointment would come in the offseason when the story of the Astros sign stealing scandal broke. The resulting fallout led to the dismissal of GM Jeff Luhnow and manager AJ Hinch in addition to a $5 million fine and the forfeiture of the 1st and 2nd round draft picks in 2020 and 2021.
Looking to put this ordeal behind them and get back to baseball, the Houston Astros are busy gearing up for the 2020 season. Contributors in the form of Carlos Correa and George Springer look to improve upon their great work last season along with Alex Bregman and Yuli Gurriel. Jose Altuve is a force to be reckoned with at second base and Josh Reddick in right field also provides solid offense and defense for this club. Yordan Alvarez joined the group last year and took home the AL Rookie of the Year award.
Pitching for the Astros has proven to be yet another strength, with an amazing rotation which starts with Justin Verlander. He is considered among the best in the big leagues, and as if that weren’t enough, Houston also has Zack Greinke, Lance McCullers, and Jose Urquidy ready to start. Roberto Osuna is the young closer for this team is and simply dominant.
In late January, the Astros ownership introduced Dusty Baker as the new manager of the team. A longtime player and manager, Baker can definitely help bring some stability to the situation in the wake of the scandal and get this team back to concentrating on baseball. He takes over a team that is loaded with talent and he won’t let that go to waste. The fans in Houston are eager to see if their team can earn another title in 2020.
Astros team history is rich with incredible players that have graced the field in their uniforms. Among these former players are Lance Berkman, Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio, and Nolan Ryan.
