The Former Enron Field : Fast Becoming The Plato’s Retreat Of The Southwest

Posted in Baseball at 10:24 pm by

Some 7 years after a Houston police officer was accused on participating in a 3-way in a Minute Maid Park unisex restroom,  the Houston Chronicle’s Jose de Jesus Ortiz reports the Astros hope to identify a fan who “stood up and pretended to expose himself while inside Minute Maid Park’s exclusive Diamond Club “.  I’ve only lived in Texas for something shy of a decade, so I didn’t realize not exposing yourself was actually a crime, but if nothing else, this should mean that David Cone oughta feel very free to accompany the Yankees on their next visit to Houston.

Sitting in the section that became famous as the seats for former President George H.W. Bush and first lady Barbara Bush, a fan appearing to hold either a cigar or a hot dog weiner stood up and dangled it while Philip Humber pitched to Albert Pujols.

The fan appears to be right behind the prime two seats former Astros owner Drayton McLane and his wife Elizabeth used. Fans in those seats get plenty of air time on television, and the fan clearly timed his prank to appear on the telecast.

The Astros have monitored that section closely under new owner Jim Crane, but at this point the Astros say they don’t know the fan in question.
