A thrill for Eldy was to see his beloved St. Louis Cardinals stats sheets still sitting in the press box from the previous game!
The tour includes the Diamond Club, the exclusive club for ticket holders paying thousands of dollars for season tickets and blocks of seats.....
If an Astro hits one of those poles, anybody holding a ticket from the game gets a free sandwich. She took us to many different sections of the park to get a lot of different views of the park....
Like the view from the dugout.....
And we got to sit in former President George Bush, Sr. and wife, Barbara's seats. Ain't that special!?
We had a tour guide intern for our tour...she did a nice job...But she talked too fast! Sparky couldn't take notes fast enough with one finger on her cell phone, so she gave up and just listened instead. We'll leave you with one fact....The retractible roof can be closed or opened in 13 minutes and you can fit a 21 story building inside it when it's closed. Ok, it's coming back to me now, how about---all the seats are angled towards home plate. There didn't appear to be a bad seat in the house.
And that really is all I can remember. It was interesting, well worth the money, and Eldy got to do something HE is REALLY interested in--baseball. Sparky thought it was a great tour, too!.....Bye for now......
That looks like a fun tour. Those seats look pretty comfortable too. Thanks for the great photos, I enjoyed the tour.ReplyDelete
Great tour. I would love to sit in the dugout for the Cleveland Indians. If you get up to Dallas, be sure to take the tour of the Cowboy stadium. It is amazing.ReplyDelete
It is made up of superb and useful posts. I've read most of them and received a great deal from them.ReplyDelete
So how many times has Chick-fil-A paid up? Inquiring minds want to know.ReplyDelete
Looks like a beautiful ball park.ReplyDelete
Not much of a baseball fan here. But I did LOVE those boots.ReplyDelete
