Minor League Spring Training Schedule

The Astros' minor league teams will begin play on March 14 this spring. On a typical game day, two minor league teams are on the road and two are at home(in Kissimmee). AA and AAA teams are together, the High A and Low A teams are paired for travel. In past years games have begun at noon(Kissimmee time). I assume this will still be the case in 2013.

If you are interested in going to see some minor league games, Larry McCoy wrote a handy guide to watching the back fields a few years ago.  Detroit is based in Lakeland.  Washington plays in Viera.  Atlanta's games take place at the Disney Complex in Orlando. The backfields are only accessible on those days that the big league club is on the road.
