Getting concessions at Minute Maid stadium will soon be as easy as picking them up and just walking out. Home to Major League Baseball team the Houston Astros, the ballpark has installed Amazon’s Just Walk Out cashierless technology at two of its stores.

Customers at the 19th Hole store on the Concourse level behind Section 156 and the Market store on the Honda Club level behind Section 211 will be able to skip the checkout line this season. All they’ll have to do is insert their credit card at a kiosk when they enter the store. The Just Walk Out tech will keep track of what items they take, and their credit card will be charged when they leave. Easy peasy.

“Our technology is designed to deliver a fast and frictionless shopping experience, so we’re thrilled to help eliminate checkout lines for fans when they need to refuel during games and between innings,” said Dilip Kumar, vice president of physical retail and technology at Amazon.
