Texas Two Step High’s Two Stadiums

Texas Two Step High’s Two Stadiums

Sports Travel and Tours’ Texas Two Step High trip will offer three baseball games and tours of two stadiums: Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, and Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas. Here’s a look at what you can expect to experience at each. Coors Field Date/Time: The tour, which is scheduled for Wednesday, June 1, is expected to last between 70 and 80 minutes. Tour Stops: All tours begin at Gate D, located near the intersection of 21st Street and Blake Street in Denver, and cover a distance of about one mile (the field itself spans 76 acres) so make sure to bring comfortable footwear! Some of the areas seen include the dugout, the visitor’s clubhouse, press level, suite level and the Wells Fargo Club. You’ll find that there are many ways to enjoy the game at Coors Field, like in the press club’s premium seating area behind home plate, or in the Wells Fargo Club, where a wait staff provides food service directly to each seat. Notable Eateries: Wazee Market (in section 137) or Wazee Bar (in section 135) Blue Moon Brewing Co. at the Sandlot (behind section 112 on the Main Concourse) Clocktower Bar (in section 331)   Minute Maid Park Date/Time: The tour, which is scheduled for Friday, June 3, is expected to last between an hour and an hour and a half. Tour Stops: Although locations are subject to availability, the regular tour highlights historic Union Station, the broadcasting booth, the press box and the luxury suite. All tours commence from Union Station, now considered a symbol of the important role the railroad played in Houston’s history. Dedicated in 1911, the station now features the Official Astros Team Store and a café in the lobby. On the upper floors you will find the state-of-the-art AT&T Conference Center, the executive offices of the Houston Astros, and, last but certainly not least, the Roof Deck and Club House on the sixth floor, where private groups of up to 100 can get an incredible view of the game and the city beyond. Guests even get to venture down to the field itself to explore the dugout, the bullpen and the manual scoreboard. If you want to experience what the stadium looks like from the unique point of view of the player, this is the tour for you! Notable Eateries: Texas Legend Grill (located in section 134) The FiveSeven Grill (in section 156) The Caz (in section 230) On Saturday, June 4, travelers will also stop into Globe Life Park in Arlington for a game between the Texas Rangers and the Seattle Mariners. However, a tour of Globe Life Park is not included in the Sports Travel and Tours package.
