Shaded & Covered Seating

The East side of Memorial Stadium has a slew of obstructed seating due to columns supporting the overhang. Columns are located at Row 53 and the likelihood of having an obstructed view increases as you move into a higher row.
A generous overhang on the east side of the stadium keeps fans in rows 42 and higher safely under cover (notice the threatening weather in the background).

Only about 15% of all seats at Memorial Stadium offer some type of shade or cover. Below is a sample of seats that are at least partially covered or shaded at different times of the day.
