The worst of the new ballparks, Minute Maid is an eyesore that sits on the fringe of Downtown Houston. This is where baseball meets an amusement park, but trust me, I was not amused. The staff appeared overwhelmed and unfriendly. The field has many nooks and crannies. The ballpark is near the convention center and the walk from local hotels was a bit spooky, especially at night.

The highlight of this trip was seeing Andy Pettitte pitch his final game, throwing a complete game and picking up career win #256.
