Tickets were half off (originally $39.00). Seats are kind of behind the foul pole, but we were not obstructed where we sat because we were far enough back. Sitting in a back row in this section is great because you have very easy access to the restrooms and some of baseball's best concessions.
I loved these seats. 6th row, on the aisle. There are eight seats per row in this section so no matter what, you're not walking over anyone or getting walked over. We moved down to the 1st row in this section as the game went into the 14th inning and from there it was even better! You felt right on top of the field and a big part of the game. I've sat in rows 1, 6 and 21 in this section and the seats become exponentially better as you get closer to the field.
These tickets were purchased for a 3:00 game on a smoldering hot day in early June. Seats on the first base line are entirely shaded for nite games, but the same can't be said for day games. We showed up at about 2:15 and sections 20 and higher were in the shade. Every five minutes or so, the next low row would be in the shade. This particular row (13) was entirely in the shade by 3:00.
Food options nearby rival the best stadium food in any sporting venue. Polish sausages, loaded baked potatoes, mexican food, pizza, plenty of deserts - you name it - it's all close to this section.
You are very close to the field (and close to field level from a height perspective) in these seats. The only complaint is the angle towards home plate. You do have to contort your body to the left to see home plate. Seats 1 and 2 are on the aisle away from home plate (close to section 121 than 119).
Seats are in the actual third row (there is a lettered row which is the front row). The first few rows in this section are very flat, which means a couple things: 1) You feel like you're right on top of the field and 2) You may have trouble seeing over larger people in front of you. The angle towards home plate is also poor and you have to contort your body to the right to keep your eyes on home plate.
There are a lot of foul balls hit on the ground towards these seats and if you're lucky you can hop down the stairs, reach over the railing and snag a ball. A young girl sitting in the actual front row got two balls during our game.
Despite this game being a sell-out, food and bathroom lines were reasonable - even between innings. The only issue is that you have to walk up about 30 rows to get to the concourse, so it's quite a hike.
Fan Opinions of the Best Seats at U.S. Cellular Field
"Best View of the Game: Lower Box."Just like any other field, if you want all of the action, it's behind home plate and the players’ dugout. If you can purchase tickets in the first few rows, you will occasionally have a player throw you a ball from the last out.
"Where Not to Sit: Anywhere in the 500 Levels."This place is just way too big to be sitting all the way up in the 500 levels. This is where the players look like ants and people with sensitive noses literally get nosebleeds. Unless you are one who knows nothing about baseball, opt out of the binoculars.
"I like the left field bleachers."You can see the game and if you want to go to the concourse, it is right there.
"The First Base Side Is Your Best Bet For Shade at U.S. Cellular Field"Seats down the first base line will be the first to get shade at U.S. Cellular Field. In the lower level on the 1B side, the higher number row, the earlier you will get shade. In the 500 level, an overhang protects the last ten or so rows. Absolutely avoid Outfield seats in Left Field during afternoon games if you want to stay out of the sun.
"Be Careful With 500 Level Aisle Seats in the First Two Rows"When buying aisle seats in the first two rows of the 500 Level at U.S. Cellular Field, choose the aisle seats that are farther away from home plate. On the third base side, these are higher number seats on the left. On the first base side, these are lower number seats on the right. Otherwise, you run the risk of having your view completely blocked by the higher railings on the home plate side in front of each section.
