in Florida, and its unique "cloverleaf" design has served as host to many
local civic events.

Stadium was recognized by Sports Turf Magazine and the Beam Clay Company
as its Baseball Field of the Year for 1990-91. Recent improvements to the
stadium and surrounding grounds have included renovation of press, ticket
office and concessions areas and padding for the outfield

March 3, 1985 when a record crowd of 7,210 saw the Astros defeat the
Yankees. The Astros surpassed the 500,000 mark in total attendance in
Kissimmee in 1993.
