The First Base Side is the Shady Side at Marlins Park
With the roof open, some seats at Marlins Park are much better than others for protecting yourself from the sun. The first base side is well covered by part of the roof, especially in the upper deck. On the 200 level, seats further down the lines are covered by the 300 level overhang. Avoid LF seats and sections 26-28 down the third base line if you are sensitive to the sun.
Avoid Section(s) 1, 2, 3, 4, 201, 202, 203, 204, 302, 303, 304, 305, 134, 135, 136, 137, 138, 139, 140 and 141 for Football -
For football games at Marlins Park, right field sections can not see the entire field. Obstructed sections include Field sections 1-4, outfield sections 134-141 and sections 201-204 and 302-305.
In general, the Legends Level provides good height for watching football at Marlins Park. Sections 221-223 above the North Endzone offer good views of the entire field from a comfortable setting.
Legends Level Sideline (Football) Seating
The best seats for football at Marlins Park are located in the 200 level sections on the West sideline. These seats provide enough elevation to see the whole field clearly and the angle towards home plate is not as severe as lower level seats (thus the angle towards midfield is OK). The smaller section size also makes it easier to get in and out.
Lower Corner (Football) Seating
Perhaps the most under-rated seats at Marlins Park for football are in the lower level corner sections. Sections 13-18 behind home plate and 25-28 down the left field line offer surprisingly good angles towards the 50 yard-line. These quality angles result in more comfortable seating and less head-turning. As with other lower level sections, choose seats in Rows 15 and higher for the best views of football at Marlins Park.
Lower Endzone (Football) Seating
The lower endzone seats on the South side of the field are marked as possible obstructed seating. Sections 19-24 on the North side are better situated for the long football field and offer video-game-like views of the action. In addition, the seats are all angled fairly well towards the 50 yardline - a rare feature when football field are set up in baseball stadiums.
Lower Sideline (Football) Seating
Sideline seats on the lower level are located in left field in Sections 29-32 and on the infield in Sections 5-12. Infield sections will provide far superior sitelines because of their proximity to the field. While the lettered rows in these sections are among the best seats for baseball, they don't provide enough elevation to see the football field clearly. Rows 15 and higher offer much more desirable views of the field.
Vista Level Sideline (Football) Seating
Some of the best seats for football at Marlins Park are located in the front rows of 307 and 308. The lower part of the Vista Level is at a good height and these seats are closer to the field than one would think. Other sections along the sideline are a bit more hit and miss due to their baseball sightlines, which aim to provide better views of home plate than the 50 yardline.
Bullpen Outfield (Baseball) Seating
Bullpen outfield seating is your best chance at catching a home run ball at loanDepot park, and provide the closest seating options to the bullpens. Sections 29-31 will be located directly behind the Marlins bullpen in left field, while sections 38-39 are just behind the visiting bullpen in left field.
Fans on the right field side will have a near impossible task of seeing the large video board located behind, while fans in section 32 on the left field side will have a great view of the activity down in the Clevelander area. Those looking to stay out of the sun are advised to avoid the left seating options.
Legends Level Down the Line (Baseball) Seating
Located just past first and third base on the second tier Legends Level, these down the line seating options offer great viewing height and smaller seating sections (no more than 13 rows in each). While you can find better views and amenities in the Legends Platinum sections, seats here still provide a very comfortable feel and are generally more affordable.
If you are a big fan of watching the scoreboard, you will want to opt for the sections down the left field line, as the options down the first base side will have a more difficult view angle to the board above right center. However, if a smaller atmosphere with easier access to and from the seats is what you're after, stick with the sections down the right field line (Sections 202-204 feature just 8 rows of seating in each).
Promenade Level Down the Line (Baseball) Seating
Sections down the line on the Promenade Level will offer good views from the lowest tier of the stadium, and will be a cheaper alternative to the Promenade Infield sections. Seats here are also known as the Baseline Reserved sections.
Located in prime foul ball territory, these begin to angle towards the pitchers mound as you get closer to the foul poles making for less head turning during the game.
Seats on the right field side will have good protection from the sun, but will have a more cumbersome time trying to view the large video board located in right center field.
Promenade Level Infield (Baseball) Seating
The Promenade Level Infield seats keep you close to the action and are still expensive, but certainly more affordable that the premium sections that line the backstop and infield walls.
The Clubhouse Box seats in sections 19-21 will get you just behind the Marlin's dugout, and the same can be said for sections 8-10 behind the visitors dugout. Seats behind home plate are also referred to as the Home Plate Box, while further down the base lines is where you will find the Base Reserved seats.
Seats on the first base side will see good shade during the day even with the retractable roof open.
Vista Level Down the Line (Baseball) Seating
The experience down the base lines on the Vista Level will be similar to that in the Vista Level Infield. Fans will find themselves on the highest tier with some of the furthest views, but will be paying less in ticket prices.
Section 303 is the best option on the right field side as it will be close to good concession options and the bar located in outside section 302. On the third base side we recommend section 324 for its great views on the video board in right field.
Fans can find great spots for watching a ballgame on any of the three main seating tiers at Marlins, but you will find the very best in the lower level near the corner bases. Seats in rows 1-10 of sections 7-9 and 21-23 provide excellent viewing angles from close to the field, and also give you a clear look at the infield. The lettered rows here get you closer to the field, but the lower numbered rows are located just behind with better
elevation, and often are more affordable.
Staying on the lower seating tier, you can also find excellent views when sitting behind home plate in the upper half of sections 12 through 17 (rows 10-24). You'll have scout style views, getting to watch pitches break across the plate and big hits which look like they're exploding off the bat. Being higher in these sections not only provides ample viewing height, but also helps to minimize the distraction of being behind the netting (sit too close, and you'll notice it much more). Just be sure to avoid the very top rows as the overhanging deck above can create a bit of tunnel vision.
If you prefer a bit more seating height above field level, Legends Level sections 209-210 and 220-221 are the place to be. The second seating tier of the ballpark has idyllic seating height great for seeing all areas of the field, and these seats near the dugouts keep you pointed right at the heart of the infield for an almost perfect natural sight line to the action. We recommend avoiding the front row as the safety railing in front may require shorter fans to lean forward to minimize any viewing restriction. Smaller sections here (just 8 rows in each) also helps minimize time away from the game for trips to and from the restrooms and concessions.
Should the lower tiers be a bit pricey for your budget, the upper deck (also known as the Vista Level) has some options worth considering in sections 320-322. Viewing angles here keep you facing toward the middle of the infield, helping dial you in to all the excitement. But should you miss a highlight, you'll have an excellent angle for catching the replay on the videoboard above right center field. Seating here is divided into a lower and upper portion by an aisle between the lettered rows (closer to the field) and numbered rows. The spots to be are in rows C through J, which will put you in the lower portion but safely back from the railing at the front of the tier which can be a viewing limitation for some.
While not the best place to be for the most avid of baseball fans, you can actually find good views of the game when sitting beyond the outfield wall in the front rows of section 40. Stick to rows A-G in this right field location and you'll have a good angle into the infield as well as the Marlins dugout along the third base line. A chain link fence near the right field corner helps you keep track of balls hit deep to the near corner, and there are only a small fraction of areas where you'll potentially lose sight of the ball up against the outfield wall.
