From opening day for the Astros to the Shell Houston open, the Rockets and even the Dynamo, there's a little something for everyone in the heart of Houston.
On the eve of opening day, Houston sports fans have had their hands full, trying to figure out which venue to visit.
Before ushering in the MLB season Sunday, Minute Maid Park held a soft grand opening of sorts Saturday, as the Astros hosted the Cubs to close out the pre-season.

It's also crunch time at Toyota Center, where Clutch City welcomes Lob City to town at 7 pm, with only 10 games remaining in the Rockets playoff push.
"This is a big test for us," said Rockets Forward Chandler Parsons. "Like I said, the San Antonio game was a big win, but that's over with, but it proved we could play with anybody."
A few blocks away, BBVA Compass Stadium will serve as the stage where the Dynamo could match MLS history Saturday night by stretching their unbeaten streak at home, to 34 games against the city where the club first started: San Jose.
"We don't want to jinx it, but it's going to happen one day," said Dominic Kinnear, Dynamo Head Coach. "We've been great at home."
For pro golfers at Shell Houston Open, Easter Sunday is also about the hunt.
Six different golfers, all within two strokes of the top prize. At Redstone, the winner will walk away with more than $1 million.
