Minute Maid Park, Houston, Texas - August 28, 2003

Before the game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros.

The park, from the excellent parking spot I got. [2048x1536]

The end of Astros batting practice from my seats behind home plate. [2048x1536]

The train, all ready to go. [2048x1536]

View from right field. When the roof is closed, as it is in this picture, there are glass windows behind the left field wall. [2048x1536]


They have some retired numbers in Houston. [2048x1536]

Some Dodgers in the outfield during BP. [2048x1536]

..and some Astros. [2048x1536]

The hill and flagpole in center field. This game would see the first ever catch made by an outfielder who climbed the hill. The Dodgers' Dave Roberts did it with a game-saving catch off Lance Berkman in the 8th inning. [2048x1536]

The Astros bullpen. [2048x1536]

Minor league uniform display, including the Tri-City ValleyCats! [2048x1536]

They count the home runs out in center field. [2048x1536]

The view from next to the home run pump. [2048x1536]

More Dodgers in the outfield during BP. [2048x1536]



BP is over. Bring on the grounds crew. [2048x1536]

The mascot, Junction Jack, makes an appearance. [2048x1536]

The visitors bullpen. [2048x1536]

Bad news on the scoreboard for the ValleyCats. They need to beat that terrible Vermont team if they want to make the playoffs. [2048x1536]
