best answer
  • Why is there a train at Minute Maid Park? It’s an ode to what once sat at the ballpark’s location Union Station. When constructed in 2000 Minute Maid Park was named The Ballpark at Union Station. The actual Union Station opened in 1911. The train station served as the main terminal for Houston passengers for more than 70 years.
