Seat view from section 229 at Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros

This was a very private and comfortable section. Ushers and Minute Maid Park staff do an excellent job of locking the club area down tight so that cheap skate fans don't sneak into these seats. Loved that there wasn't too many rows to sort through and the fans were all very well behaved. With only 11 or 12 rows in all, it's impossible to choose a poor seat but row 1 is definitely the most ideal.
The roof was open the day we went- an open roof makes this place seem like a completely different ballpark. When it's closed, it has a very drab and boring feel to it, almost like a giant warehouse that hosts professional baseball. 229 would be a great place for the entire family to sit albeit pricey. ($40 per head).

I've been coming to this place since it was called Enron Field in the beginning. When they went down in flames, so did the Astros not too much longer. Still miss those Bagwell/Biggio/Oswal t days.

To give you an idea what the view of the field is like from section 229, here is a Youtube video shot from there before an Astros/San Diego Padres game at Minute Maid Park.
