The Houston Astros began construction on the center field area of Minute Maid Park on Monday, October 10th. Construction is scheduled to be complete and the new center field area will be ready for fans to enjoy by the start of the 2017 season.
The renovation will include improved seating options, new food and beverage options, the addition of escalators to improve fan access and revisions to the playing field, including the removal of Tal's Hill.
The design of the new center field area was in partnership with MSA Sport and influenced by feedback from fans, current and former players and front office personnel. Astros executives also visited over 20 MLB ballparks as part of the center field project planning process.
