Home Field Advantage

The Astros hosted CHIME at Minute Maid Park’s renovated center field on Wednesday, August 23rd showing off the good eats, venues and amenities available to fans in the area where Tal’s Hill once stood. Astros Sr. VP of Business Operations, Marcel Braithwaite, discussed the Astros thriving season and the ball park’s renovations. “The tastes of the community have changed,” says Braithwaite.  “This was a beautiful park when it was built, and it still is. It was built for private locations and kind of secluded spots — and dark colors and kind of away from things. Now, people like to see the food made in front of them. They want to be around the action, they want a place to be social.”CHIME members toured renovated event areas, dined at award-winning, Texas favorite, Torchy’s Tacos, and cheered on the Astros as they defeated the Washington Nationals.

“The bottom line is giving fans a ballpark they can enjoy for years.” – Marcel Braithwaite, Houston Astros Sr. VP of Business Operations
