Minute Maid Park, Houston, Texas, USA

Since its opening, Minute Maid Park, has become one of baseballs “crown jewels.” The construction began on October 30, 1997. It would feature a retractable roof and natural grass. The ballpark was constructed with concrete and steel structures, and the facade consist of brick and limestone. The 1911-vintage Union Station forms the ballpark’s main entrance. A retractable roof was necessary for the ballpark to keep the summer heat out and to keep fans cool. The roof can open or close in 20 minutes. As part of a 30 year/$100 million deal the ballpark was originally known as Enron Field
