Seat view from section 152 at Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros

A few little tidbits about my type spent in 152 (row 4).
*It's called a bullpen box but you can't really see either bullpen from this particular section.
*There are roughly 25 rows of seats, the last 5 or so rows will appear underneath the overhang from the Mezzanine. Not that important of a factor in an indoor ballpark so there is no shade to hide from.
*The right field side is very short so the bullpen boxes see many home runs during games but not as many as the Crawford Boxes. 152 is close to the foul pole in right field.
*The seats are standard. Not the most comfortable but good enough for three hours of Astros baseball.
*All kinds of LAZ Parking surface lots and garages. On weekends, you can often park at the couthouse on Franklin street for $5-$10.
*If you're attending a weeknight game against the Royals, A's, Mariners, just buy a view deck seat and move down to these seats. The ushers aren't too thorough for lowly attended games; less incentive for them to act like a hard ass.
*The entire design was inspired by the railroad industry making it a one of a kind ballpark. The train is a nice touch but moves about 1 MPH and carries oranges in the back of it.
*Food and beverages are allowed in.
*Main ticket office is on Texas Avenue.
