Sit On the Third Base Side For Shade; Avoid the Outfield
The best seats at Fenway Park for being in the shade are in the Grandstand, especially on the third base side. These seats are covered from the elements even during early afternoon games. If you want to sit closer to the field, sit on the third base side to get the shade first and to have the sun behind you. Avoid the bleachers at all costs for late afternoon and evening games if you are sensitive to the sun. To search for tickets or to find out if your seats are protected from the sun or rain, follow the link below.
Fenway Park has long been a popular destination for families to bring their kids and experience one of America's oldest ballparks. Despite its fame as a tourist attraction, the park has long been lacking in terms of family-friendliness. However, recent initiatives aim at being more kid-friendly and attracting even more families. The most signi...
If you're headed to Fenway Park with an eye on catching a home run ball, you're going to need a little bit of luck. The Monster Seats above the Green Monster in left field do see home run balls, but they also see a number of would-be home runs dent the tall wall or fly overhead completely out of the ballpark. If you're feeling lucky, Monster sectio...

Fenway offers a number of standing areas, ledges, tables and, of course, local beers. Though the Fenway P...
Despite attracting millions of fans each year - many of them out-of-towners - Red Sox fans at Fenway Park have a reputation for being overly rude to guests cheering for the opposing team. With this in mind, you may want to purchase tickets in areas of the ballpark that are most likely to be filled with fans who share your rooting interest. If ...
Based on capacity, Fenway Park is one of the five smallest ballparks in the Major Leagues. The intimate setting of the ballpark keeps more fans closer to the field and doesn't subject anyone to an upper deck or nosebleed seating. As a whole, this yields better views of the game and a more engaged fan experience. Never-the-less, there are some seats...
Grandstand 23 - Smack dab behind a pole. - Couldn't see the pitcher, the batter, or the entire right side of the field.
Grandstand 1 - Avoid the right side - The beam at the right side of the row limits the view for seats furthest to the right in all the seating rows
Grandstand 2 - Beam at the right - Seats near the left aisle will have a difficult view due to the support beam. Seats near the right aisle are much better.
Grandstand 3 - Right side has the better angle - Most rows in Grandstand Section 3 have better views near the right aisle. If you sit near the left aisle, the beam at the left can impact your view of the infield.
Grandstand 4 - Avoid the left side at all costs - Views from the seats near the left side of the section are incredibly difficult as you have multiple beams blocking your view of the infield. Whenever possible, stick with the seats near the right aisle in Grandstand 4 for the best views in most seating rows.
Grandstand 5 - No relief from the beams - The support beam to the left is down a few rows into the loge box, and a few seats in from the aisle creating difficult views from just about every row. Best place to be is probably the far left side of rows 4-10.
Grandstand 6 - Difficult to avoid an obstructed view - There is a beam about 7 seats in off the right aisle just in front of the first row, and more beams to the left as you look toward home plate. Best bet for a clear view is the far left seats in the lowest rows.
Grandstand 7 - Beam in the middle - A support beam is about 12 seats in off the right aisle just in front of the first row - almost right in the middle of the section. With more beams to the left of the section, views here are incredibly difficut as there is little relief from obstruction
Grandstand 8 - Stay low and left or high and right - The beam in front of the first row creates some really difficult views in the seats near the right aisle in the lower rows. However, fans near the left aisle in the lower rows will have clear views of the infield, as well as those near the right aisle in the upper rows.
Grandstand 9 - Very few seats with clear views of the infield - A beam at the right side of the first row (about 5 seats in) makes for really difficult views of the infield in most rows. Best place to be is near the left aisle in Rows 4 through 8.
Grandstand 10 - Seats to the right are best in Rows 3 and up - When sitting in rows 3 and higher in Grandstand Section 10, stick to seats near the right aisle. Seats closer to the left side of the row will have obstructed views of the infield.
Grandstand 11 - Better to be left and low - The obnoxious support beam just in front of Row 1 and almost right in the middle of the row. Seats on the right side of the section will have the more difficult views, but if you can get a seat near the left aisle and in a low numbered row, you will have good clear views of the infield.
Grandstand 12 - Need to be either low row on the right, or high row on the left - Given the position of the support beam, you either want to be at the very right side of the lower rows (1 through 3), or at the far left side of the higher rows (10 and above). Other seats in the section will have to deal with some form of obstruction when viewing into the infield.
Grandstand 13 - Obstructed on the left side - Staying in the first few seats off the right aisle in Rows 1-10 will provide a clear view into the infield.
Grandstand 14 - Challenging views at the left side of the section - One of the larger grandstand sections, you can find some unobstructed views in the lower row seats near the right side of the section, but you will want to avoid being on the furthest right aisle seat. Other seating areas are more risky here, especially closer to the left side of the section where your view of the pitchers mound and batters box can be limited.
Grandstand 15 - Most difficult views are near the ends - instead sit near the middle - Other than in the front row, you will find some kind of frustrating obstruction in every row of Grandstand 15. Sit too far to the right and you lose the pitchers mound, too far left and you'll be blocked from the batters box. Your safest bet here is to as close to the middle of the row as possible.
Grandstand 16 - Avoid the aisles and opt for middle seats - At the front row you won't have to deal with the beams blocking your view, but in the other rows you'll want to be in the middle seats. Sitting near the aisles will mean you're blocked out from the batters box (right aisle) or pitchers mound (left aisle)
Grandstand 17 - No pitchers mound view from right side - Seats near the left aisle will be great, but closer to the right aisle in Rows 4 and higher in Grandstand 17 will leave you with a tough and sometimes non-existent view of the ball leaving the pitchers hand.
Grandstand 18 - Stay within 6 seats of the left aisle - Seats closer to the right side of Grandstand 18 will have to contend with the support beam for a view of the batters box and pitchers mound. But if you can stay no more than 6 seats in from the left aisle, you'll be left with tremendous views of the infield.
Grandstand 19 - Blocked out from homeplate in the upper rows on the left aisle - If you're sitting in the last few rows of Grandstand 19, be sure to avoid the left aisle as these seats have a difficult view of home plate and the batters box. Sitting in the middle or towards the right side of the section will help you avoid any viewing issues.
Grandstand 20 - Avoid the right aisle if you want to see either the pitcher or batter - The beam at the right side or Row 1 could not be in a worse place for those sitting near the right aisle. You will struggle to see both the pitchers mound and the batters box - so avoid the seats near the right aisle at all costs. If you can find seats at the left side of the section though, you will be treated to excellent views of the game.
Grandstand 21 - Opt for the right side if possible - Seats in Rows 9 and higher near the aisle at the left side of the section will have difficult views of the pitchers mound and shortstop area. Go for the seats on the right side of the section and you will have amazing unobstructed views of the infield.
Grandstand 22 - Batters box blockout on the right - Unless you were lucky enough to get a seat in Row 1, you'll struggle to see pretty much anything around home plate with a seat near the right aisle due to the support beam.
Grandstand 23 - Issues on the left side - Seats on the left half of the section will unfortunately have to contend with a support beam for a view of the pitchers mound and batters box. Instead, choose seats near the right side of the section for safer views of the entire infield.
Grandstand 24 - Tough views of pitchers mound and left side of the infield - While the seats at the right side of Grandstand 24 will have excellent views of the entire field, seats near the left aisle in Rows 4 and higher will have a tough time trying to get an obstructed view of the pitchers mound and the left side of the infield.
Grandstand 25 - Middle seats are the safest for clear views - In most rows of Grandstand 25 (the exception being Row 1), the middle seats are going to be the safest bet for decent views to the field. Sitting within a few seats of the right aisle leaves the beam right between the pitchers mound and homeplate, leaving you tracking pitches through the obnoxious beam. And if you're near the left aisle, you
Grandstand 26 - Limited views at the right side - If you can get a seat in the first row of Grandstand 26, opt for seats at the left side of the section. Fans near the right aisle will have a very limited view of the pitchers mound due to the support pillar.
Grandstand 27 - Need to be a few seats in from the right aisle - There is no espcaping an obstructed view in Grandstand 27 if you're looking by row number alone as even seats in Row 1 can have obstructed views near the right aisle. But if you can avoid the first 4 seats off the right aisle in any of the rows, you will be in great shape to see the entire infield without any limitation.
Grandstand 28 - Hard to avoid the low row beam to the right - While one of the smaller Grandstand sections, the views of the infield are still very difficult from Grandstand 28 due to the beam at the left side of neighboring Grandstand 27. Seating doesn't begin until row 3 in this triangle shaped section, causing the lower beam to really create havoc with views of the pitchers mound and middle infield.
Grandstand 29 - Infield views limited by the pillars - Grandstand Section 29 seems to be at a perfect angle for keeping those pesky beams in your views of the infield. This is most noticeable near the left and right aisles, however if you can find a seat near the middle in any of the rows, you will actually have a good clear view.
Grandstand 30 - Stay left for a clearer view of the infield - Rows 7 and higher put you above the entry tunnel meaning you have the potential to be on the far right aisle where the views are incredibly difficult. Whenever possible, opt for seats closer to the left aisle but be sure to avoid the aisle seats themselves when sitting in Rows 7 and higher.
Grandstand 31 - Beam in the middle of the infield when sitting on the right side - If sitting above the entry tunnel (Rows 7+) in Grandstand 31, you want to be sure to avoid the seats at the far right side of the section. These will have limited infield views due to the beam at the right side of the section. Seats closer to the left aisle are a much safer option.
Grandstand 32 - Stick to the left half of the row - Seats on the right half of Rows 7 and higher will have difficult views of the infield thanks to the support beam located at the right side of the section. But if you can get a seat closer to the left aisle, you can actually find some great value with a clear line of sight to all areas of the infield.
Grandstand 33 - Not easy to find a clear infield view - Grandstand 33 is a smaller section located right next to the monster in the left field corner, and unless you're in either Rows 1 or 2, you'll have a difficult time trying to find a clear view to the infield. Your best bet is stay either in a low row (3 through 6) near the left side of the section, or in a higher row (12 or above) near the right aisle.
