Osceola County Stadium is a baseball field located in Kissimmee, Florida. It is most notable as the Spring Training home of the Houston Astros. It has the smallest seating capacity of any Grapefruit League stadium. It hosted the Kissimmee Cobras (called the Osceola Astros from 1985-1994) from 1985-2000 in the single-A Florida State League. As of June 2009, the GCL Astros in the rookie-level Gulf Coast League play at the stadium.

The Osceola County Complex is also host to the Jim Evans Academy of Professional Umpiring where many hopeful future Major League umpires go to learn their trade. The stadium also hosts numerous amateur baseball events throughout the remainder of the year in conjunction with; USSSA, Triple Crown Sports, World Baseball Federation and Promotion Sports.
