Best Seats for Kids and Family at Minute Maid Park

Recommended seats are highlighted on the map

With an entire area dedicated to kids, good weather and a train running on tracks above the stadium, Minute Maid Park is favorite summertime destination for families in Houston.

The Astros have devoted a large area of the ballpark in right field to what they call Squeeze Play - a play area designed for kids. This area opens 30 minutes after gates open (gates typically open 90-120 minutes before first pitch) and runs until the 7th inning. Kids 12 and under will be able to try their hand at speed pitch, batting practice and even a climbing structure to play on. The area can be accessed near the right field entrance outside of sections 132 and 133. If you plan to sit in sections near Squeeze Play, be advised that these are some of the sunniest seats in the ballpark during the afternoon and early evening.

Minute Maid Park features a retractable roof which helps prevent rainouts and keeps fans dry during inclement weather. The roof is also closed when temperatures soar into the high 80s. For games when the roof is open and temperatures are still in the 80s, families and those sensitive to the sun will want to avoid most seats on the first-base side of the field - especially those near the right-field corner. Even when it's not too hot outside, the sun wreaks havoc on fans by blinding them as they look back towards home plate. To avoid the risk of sunburn, always consider seats on third base side of the field first.   - RateYourSeats.com
