Dodger Stadium is the third oldest venue in the MLB behind Fenway and Wrigley, two ballparks which are widely known to have many seats with disappointing views for a baseball game. But Dodger does not fall victim to the same struggles, and offers a number of phenomenal seating options for watching baseball in Los Angeles.
Best Views on the Lower Level
Starting on the lower level, fans can find top notch views when sitting in odd numbered sections 17-25 on the third base line near the Dodgers dugout, or even numbered sections 16-24 behind the visitors dugout, but keep in mind that these sections will be behind the extend protective netting. The viewing angle has you facing the middle of the infield, and the proximity to the action will keep you completely tuned in to every pitch. One unsung benefit here is the small seating rows, which feature no more than 8 or 9 seats in each. You'll never be far from the aisle, but more importantly you have less neighbors making trips to and from the concourse, helping to limit the number of times you need to get up to let someone in or out of the row.
Other great options for watching the game from the lower seating tier are found in the back half of sections 1-4, putting you directly behind home plate. You'll have unparalleled views of pitches as they make their way to the plate, and the seats keep you looking straight away at all the action near the batter's box. We recommend the upper rows here (L through X) as the additional seating height helps provide a wider and deeper range of vision.
Best Views on the Loge Level
We were lucky enough to visit Dodger Stadium for multiple games, and could not have better things to say about the Loge Level seats. These sections are impressively close to the field for not being on the lowest tier, and the viewing height is one of the best we've experienced in all of baseball. Its hard not to recommend the entire Loge Level, but the best of the best here are seats in the lower half (rows A-J) of the sections between the dugouts (101-136). Sitting near the front of these perfectly positioned sections is an amazing experience, and you'll also have small seating rows (no more than 8 seats) for less distraction from the game. If you prefer seats with overhead coverage, opt for rows N and above which still has very good views of the field.
For a more affordable option which still gives you a good view of the ballgame, you'll want to search in the infield reserve sections behind home plate, or the lower reserved sections down the third base line. Behind home plate, rows C-H in Infield Reserve 1-5 give you straight away perspective with expansive views of the field which don't feel all that far from the action. Further down the third base line, rows C-H in Lower Reserve sections 15, 23, 27, and 31 offer good value, with excellent seating angles toward infield and the sun at your back sooner for a day game. We recommend rows C and higher as the railing at the front of the sections can impact the view when sitting in rows A and B in front. Also, be sure to pass on closer rows of Lower Reserve 19 as you will find some Dodgers cameramen covering the game at the front of the section.
