The ballpark was Houston's first retractable-roofed stadium, protecting fans and athletes from Houston's notoriously humid weather ,but also allowing fans to enjoy outdoor baseball during favorable weather. The ballpark also features a grass field. The largest entrance to the park is inside what was once Houston's Union Station, and the left-field side of the stadium features a train as homage to the site's history. The train moves along a track on top of the length of the exterior wall beyond left field whenever an Astros player hits a home run, or when the Astros win a game. The engine's tender, traditionally used to carry coal, is filled with giant oranges in tribute to Coca Cola's Minute Maid's most famous product, orange juice. The ballpark has 5,095 club seats and 63 luxury suites.
