Ballparks make interesting venues for concerts. In fact, many of the best seats for a baseball game are among the worst for a concert. Here are some general tips to help you out:

  • Billy Joel's stage is in Center Field for all shows at a baseball stadium
  • Sitting in a low row behind home plate is too far away and not enough height
  • Many seats down the line are angled towards home plate - not center field
  • Seats on the field are exponentially better the closer you get
  • Expect to stand the whole time if seated on the field
