Chase Field is an impressive structure with its state of the art retractable roof, but unfortunately the seating sections of the inner seating bowl are not as well designed. Other than the options located between the corner bases, most sections have fans pointing towards the outfield. And if you you're sitting beyond the outfield wall there are portions of the warning track where you won't be able to see. So one important tip to take away when searching for good views at a D-Backs game is stay between the edges of the dugouts.
Among the best options for watching a baseball game at Chase Field are found in sections 127-129 above the D-Backs dugout (third base side), or sections 115-117 above the visitors dugout. These seats do not extend all the way to the field due to the premium Field Box sections just beneath, but this helps to provide more seating height for wider and deeper sight lines. The protecting netting behind home plate extends to sections 115 and 129, so we recommend opting for sections beyond the dugouts if you prefer to avoid the netting from coming into view as you look to home plate.
But if you don't mind looking through the netting, seats behind home plate are an excellent option in rows 21-30 of sections 121-123. These are located in the lower portion of the section and just above the premium Field Box seats, offering a good viewing height and impressive proximity to the batters box. You can make calls like an umpire thanks to great views of pitches as they cross the plate, and if you miss something on the field, you still have an straight away viewing angle to the center field scoreboard.
On the second tier of Chase Field (also known as the Club level), fans will have an ideal seating height which provides excellent overall views of the field when sitting in sections 206-208 and 212-214. These seats have great alignment to the infield, and an additional bonus is the in-seat wait service. Order food and beverage right to your seat and spend less time in the concourse away from the game. Be cautious if searching in sections 209 and 211 as the seats closest to home plate will have an additional railing impacting the view of home plate.
Club level sections behind home plate (210A-210I) are an intriguing option as they feature no more than 2 rows of seating, but it is important to note that you can only access the concourse from tunnels on the first base side of section 210A or the third base side of 210I. Therefore, if sitting right in line with home plate (section 210E) you will have a lengthy trip away from the game to visit the restroom.
The upper seating tier of Chase Field is very steep, and if you are sitting above the entry tunnel (located at row 4), you're likely to be battling at least one railing for a clear view down to the field. This makes it difficult to recommend seats on the 300 level for watching a baseball game, but if you're priced out of the 100 and 200 level seats, try to search for seats within the first 3 rows (below the tunnels) and stay between the corner bases.
