Attending an Astros Game at Osceola County Stadium
Osceola County Stadium has been the home of the Houston Astros since 1985. At 5,300-seat capacity, Osceola County Stadium is the smallest in the league showing the ballpark prides itself on player accessibility. From mid-February through March, Astrophiles are allowed to watch every workout at no charge. Even on game days, when the gates open at 11 a.m., you can watch both teams take batting practice.
Unlike newer stadiums, neither the home nor the visiting clubhouse is connected to dugouts, so players must walk outside with fans where they will often sign autographs and pose for photographs. The Park itself, with pine trees lining the outfield, is considered one of the most picturesque for fans. It's also family-friendly. In rightfield at the end of the grandstand there's a fenced-off playground so parents have the option to drop off kids who might not want to sit through a game.
For the 2003 season, Osceola County Stadium unveiled a new look thanks to a $18.3 million renovation project that includes, a refurbished stadium, with all chair-back seats and added restrooms, concession stands and a souvenir store. Capacity has been increased slightly, to 5,300.
A new stadium exterior is made of concrete blocks and wrought iron gates reminiscent of Camden Yards and other retro-ballparks. For the players the renovations included, a spacious new major-league clubhouse similar to the one the Astros use at Minute Maid Park, a separate minor-league clubhouse with cubicles and training rooms almost identical to the one the major-leaguers have, additional playing-field space for spring bunting and infield drills and a new office complex for the Astros' staff.
