Choose a double-digit row (10 and higher) for your best chance to be in the shade or to be in the shade earlier. For a 1pm game, very few rows will be covered completely. There are 13 rows in Section 215 and 23 in sections 216-218. The concourse entrance is behind the last row as well, so the farther back you are, the closer you will be to concessions and restrooms.
