You may have heard of a little team known as the Houston Astros, but did you know they're not the only baseball team in town? The Sugar Land Space Cowboys, a minor league baseball team, has been entertaining baseball fans of all ages since 2012.

Attending a Space Cowboys game is the grand slam of family activities if you have young baseball enthusiasts. The entertainment options at Constellation Field, the team's stadium, are worth the price of admission by themselves (and probably the main event for wriggly toddlers). Read on for our tips for making a Space Cowboys game into the ultimate family night out.

Sugar Land Space Cowboys Game Schedule and Tickets

The Sugar Land Space Cowboys play ball almost every night of the week during the April-September season, with most games starting at 7:05 PM to take advantage of cooler evenings. Sunday games are typically at 6:35 PM, and that's what we chose in order to get our 5- and 7-year-olds home for bedtime.

Single game tickets range from $11-69. Kids under 3 are free. Check the Space Cowboys schedule when you're buying tickets, because there are fun deals ($5 frozen drinks!) and giveaways on certain nights.

Kid-Friendly Things To Do at the Sugar Land Space Cowboys Stadium

The most important secret is that the stadium opens an hour before the game starts, so get there early to take advantage of Constellation Field's many kid-friendly amenities and scope the excellent food options. Bring a swimsuit and towel!

Bay Cadillac Kiddie Corral and Red Diamond Splash Pad

We spent a lot of time in this expansive playground, which is half space-themed and half Western-themed. There's ample room to run around, plenty of climbing equipment, and slides. The Western-themed play area is more suitable for toddlers and smaller children.

Right by the Kiddie Corral and behind Center Field is a large splash pad, which is perfect for Houston's hot summer evenings. My kids chose to attend the game in their swimsuits to stay cool.

The Kiddie Corral and splash pad are sandwiched between the Karbach Cantina and the Bud Light Ice House, which are way more fun for grownups. But Texas Sugar Fluff, located next to Karbach Cantina, sells lemonade, cotton candy, snow cones, and other sweet treats (open only on weekends).

King Ranch Ag & Turf Grassland

Located next to the Bud Light Ice House is the Grassland, which is essentially a big, grass-covered hill where you can sit and view the game. Out-of-towners might not realize that a big hill is a novelty in Houston, so if there aren't many people sitting on it, kids love to run up and roll down.

Located on the concourse behind sections 10 and 11, Moonshot Alley is a free batting simulator, with a batting machine pitching to fans of all ages. Batting helmets are provided. My kids just walked by this, because they were focused on...

Space Cowboys Stadium Concessions

Constellation Field has a huge selection of kid-friendly food available. There's even a Chik-Fil-A for those who can't get through a game without their waffle fry fix. Most food vendors are located in the main concourse, and you can get everything from pizza to Tex-Mex to BBQ to ice cream. My kids opted for chicken tenders and a classic ballpark hotdog, with Dippin' Dots for dessert. Grownups can hit up Buttered and Boozed if they don't want to walk back to Karbach Cantina.

Overall, we can't wait to go back and watch some more minor league baseball. Check the Space Cowboys website for tickets, schedule, and more stadium information.
