The makeover includes a renovation of the Diamond Club
The Houston Astros organization is undergoing some big changes. In addition to moving to the American League and operating under a new owner, Jim Crane, the team is making upgrades to its ballpark, Minute Maid Park. The improvements include: rebranding of Minute Maid throughout the park, revamping the clubhouse, and renovating Union Station’s fourth floor.
On the premium side, a $2.5 million facelift of the 330-seat Diamond Club behind home plate is underway and will be completed before the start of this MLB season later this month. According to Sports Business Journal, post-renovation, the club will add 7,000 square-feet and comfortably accommodate up to 400 people. ARAMARK has also replaced buffet lines with service stations in the club.
The Astros are also considering altering other areas of Minute Maid Park, including its dimensions, in future seasons. The team is looking at altering the train above left field as well as flattening the hill in center field and moving in the fences.
