The Houston Astros will play all their home games at the Astrodome in 1992, but likely will have a 28-day road trip to accommodate the Republican Party's National Convention.
Astros vice president Ted Haracz met with the National League scheduling committee in Chicago on Wednesday.
Haracz told the Houston Chronicle the league was against playing any home games in New Orleans or other places while the GOP takes access to the Dome from July 27 to Aug. 24 to set up and tear down the convention.
"I would be very surprised if we didn't play 81 games here in 1992 with one long road trip," Haracz said. "It's not something the Astros endorse or reject. It's what the league wants, and we really don't have much say in it. If we didn't play all the games in the Dome, the league feels it might cause a competitive imbalance."
