Batter up! Students join Houston Methodist at Minute Maid Park

Texas A&M College of Medicine students at the Houston campus were recently treated to an inside look at Minute Maid Park.

As part of the Houston Methodist’s partnership with the Houston Astros, Houston Methodist invited residents, fellows and medical students to enjoy an evening of ‘batting practice and lite bites’ at Minute Maid Park.  Nine Texas A&M medical students took part in the fun evening.

“We’re thrilled to provide these unique experiences to our students to support their time in Houston during their learning and training,” said Daniel Hootman, manager of the Texas A&M College of Medicine Partnership with Houston Methodist.
