Astros to postpone center field renovation
On June 4, the Astros announced plans for an offseason renovation of the center field area of Minute Maid Park.
After receiving and reviewing all bid packages, the Astros have decided to suspend the existing plans for a center field renovation.
"Through the bidding process, we determined that the construction timelines to have the ballpark ready for Opening Day 2016 became too risky, and we decided it was in everyone's best interest to postpone the renovation." said Astros President of Business Operations Reid Ryan. "The playing field, including Tal's Hill, will stay the same for the 2016 season. Other potential renovations to the ballpark are being evaluated, and we will announce future plans in the coming months."
The Astros remain committed to our fans and the experience at Minute Maid Park. We will continue to invest in annual improvements of the ballpark to ensure Minute Maid Park is a premium destination for families to enjoy baseball and other great entertainment.
