Touch of History

The Touch of History Tour offers an unprecedented opportunity for guests to view and touch historic baseball artifacts. Participants will connect with Houston baseball history through game-used bats, jerseys, baseballs, and more from Houston-area baseball legends, ranging from the time of the Texas League Houston Buffs up to the present American League West Division Champion Houston Astros.

This experience is led by our Tours Coordinator, who will share entertaining stories, while guests hold Houston baseball's most treasured artifacts. Touch of History guests will also enjoy a tour of Minute Maid Park, including stops at the Upper Deck, Luxury Suites, and Honda Club Level before heading to the Astros dugout and taking a stroll around the field on the warning track (locations subject to availability).

The Touch of History experience lasts approximately 1 ½ - 2 hours (30-minute artifact session and 1 - 1 ½ tour). There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or no shows.
