Houstonians didn't want to see their favorite baseball team leave, so the city voted to construct a new stadium for the home team. Enron Field was constructed, and the Astros and fans have been happy since. Enron Field was constructed downtown in the heart of Houston. The location created parking concerns for Houstonians, because the area was so cramped. Enron Field has approxi mately 2,500 parking spaces and since it's opening, there hasn't been much chaos at all. The Sports Authority and other members involved in the construction of Enron Field are considering a parking garage, but that won't come into play until after the first season. One of the more interesting features of Enron Field, which can hold up to 42,000 fans, is its retractable roof, something the Astrodome did not offer. The reason for the retractable roof was to allow the use of real grass on the field. The roof, which can be opened and closed between 12 to 20 minutes, is planned to be open for more than 60 percent of the games. For many, the retractable roof also brings the game more to life because there seems to be no better feeling than watching a baseball game under the stars. Opening day at Enron Field was one to remember and will mark the beginning of a Houston tradition as Enron Field grows in the hearts of Houstonians. • by Linda Canales FieMFact Enron Field occupies more than I.I million square feet and has an estimated cost of $250 million. There are more than 60 suites available and a play area for children. Escalators and elevators can take fans to any level on the stadium, and there are even novelty stores where fans can shop for memorabilia. EnROn FIELD • 277
