Best Seats for Kids and Family

Kauffman Stadium is highly regarded as a family-friendly destination for baseball fans in Kansas City. The Royals offer a number of family days with special promotions and have even built a field for kids within Kauffman Stadium.

If you know you want to bring the family along to a Royals game but are undecided as to which game to go to, consider Friday night and Sunday afternoon games first. From May through August, Friday nights at the K become fireworks nights. The Royals put on an awe-inspiring display of fireworks that shoot off over center field. On these nights, you'll want to avoid seats in the outfield and far down the line. We recommend sections behind home plate on the 400 level for the best views and a little lighter dent on the wallet.

Another consideration for a family outing is to attend a Sunday afternoon game. The crowds at these games is usually less inebriated than you would find on a Friday and Saturday night. Furthermore, all kids 14 and younger can run the bases after the game. For these games - and all afternoon games - pay close attention to the weather. Kauffman Stadium is one of the hottest stadiums in the country and sitting in the right row can make the difference between a pleasant afternoon and a painful sunburn.

The third base side is the less sunny side of Kauffman Stadium. The sun will set behind these sections - making them the first to get the shade. Loge sections on this side of the field (303-311) are the absolute best way to stay out of the sun. These seats are fully covered and most rows will be shaded - no matter where the sun is. When the forecast is expected to be hot, ticket prices in these sections skyrocket - but we tend to think they're worth it.

Other considerations for shade include the upper rows of sections 209-225 and 403-415. Between these two options, the 200 level seats are far superior in nearly every aspect (closer to the field, better shade, better accessibility) but also come with a much higher ticket price.

If you're going to the game on a non-fireworks day and the weather will be bearable, consider sitting in the Sonic Slam seats in Sections 101-103. These seats are in home run territory, and each time a Royals player hits a blast into these sections, all fans seated here win a free Sonic Slush and Sonic gift card. These sections are also situated just in front of the fountains and the Outfield Experience.

The main feature of the Outfield Experience (located behind left field seats) is Little K - a miniature ballpark built for kids. Little ones are encouraged to hit, run and throw on the field before and during the Royals game. Other activities located nearby include mini-golf, batting practice and pitching practice.

Sections 101, 102 and 103

  • Close to to the Outfield Experience with the Little K field for kids

  • Smallest sections in the upper level with fewer than 12 rows and fewer than 6 seats in most rows
  • Excellent view of the videoboard and Friday night fireworks
  • More affordable ticket price than seating on the lower levels

Sections 303, 304, 305 and 306

  • These loge sections offer the best shade and cover at Kauffman Stadium
  • Excellent views of the field and scoreboard to keep the kids engaged
  • Close to the family restroom at section 304

Rows LL-TT in Sections 214, 215, 216 and 217

  • Seats are fully covered and mostly shaded in the afternoon to keep the whole family cool
  • With the section entrance at the top of each section, the higher rows make for quicker trips for food and washroom breaks
  • Just a short walk from the Outfield Experience in left field - an area full of fun activities for kids

Best Seats for Visiting Team Fans

While Kansas City may not be top-of-mind as a vacation destination, Kauffman Stadium offers out-of-town baseball fans a good ballpark, plenty of in-stadium watering holes and ticket prices affordable on nearly any budget.

If you're coming to the K to cheer on the opposing team, you'll want to target tickets in the first few rows of sections 119-122. Row A is the first row in each of these sections and is directly behind the visitor dugout. Unfortunately, these seats require a relatively long walk to concessions and restrooms. If convenience is important to you, section 119 will keep you close to your favorite team and close to the field level concourse tunnel.

Another consideration for fans of the visiting team are seats in right field above the visitor bullpen. Sections 150-152 are all within four rows of the visitor bullpen - giving you a chance to watch the pitchers as they warm up. Given the small size of these sections, tickets might be difficult to come by. If that's the case, sections 250-252 are just above the walkway from 150-152 - but don't have much of a view of the bullpen. If purchasing a ticket in right field, just keep in mind that these are among the sunniest (and hottest) seats in all of baseball. Hats, sunglasses and other sun protection are essential.

One advantage of sitting in the sunny outfield seats is close proximity to a number of features on the outfield concourse. Near the visitor bullpen are the Bud Patio and Bullpen Bar. The area around Kauffman Stadium offers very little in the way of pre-game hot-spots, so we recommend grabbing a drink in one of the outfield bars and keeping an eye on batting practice. If you arrive early enough, you should be able to grab a covered and shaded spot in one of the bars in right field.

As you make your way from right to left field around the outfield concourse, you'll pass a series of fountains, which are the signature trademark of Kauffman Stadium. Another popular pre-game destination - the Fountain Bar - is located in left field near sections 201-203.

If you're visiting Kansas City for a baseball trip, you'd be remiss to skip out on the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. Just a ten-minute drive from the Royals Stadium, the museum offers highly recommended exhibits for a low $10 admission fee.

Rows A-J in Sections 119, 120, 121 and 122

  • Within ten rows of the visitor dugout
  • Excellent view of the infield and the batter-pitcher exchange

Sections 150, 151, 152 and 250

  • Close to the visitor bullpen - located above sections 150, 151 and 152
  • Close proximity to pre-game bars, including the patio and bullpen bar
  • Near the outfield concourse where you can tour the fountains and check out the Outfield Experience

Craft and Draft

  • Best new place to drink and eat - an experience unique to Kauffman Stadium
  • Excellent spot to grab one of 70 different beers and an artisan pizza
  • Ticketed and non-ticketed seating options in a shaded and covered area of the loge level

Best Seats for Great Views of the Field

When it comes to ballpark shape, sitelines and seating levels, Kauffman Stadium is a fairly traditional ballpark by today's standards. The stadium is relatively symmetric without any major quirks or obstructed views to worry about. Generally speaking, when it comes to getting the best view, you tend to get what you pay for.

As with most ballparks, the most desirable views are located behind home plate. These include Crown seats at field level, 100 level sections, lettered Diamond Boxes and seats on the 400 Level. Among these options, the seats on the View (400) Level are far-and-away the cheapest tickets. You'll also find that these are the only seats behind home plate that do not look through the protective netting. Instead, you'll have an entirely clear bird's eye view of the view and a head-on look at the videoboard. For the best overall experience, sit below row M and start your search with tickets in sections 418-422.

If you're looking at tickets in 100 level sections behind home plate and on the infield, the best views will come from sections 119-135. Specifically, we recommend the last six rows in these sections, labeled S-X. While you won't be right up against the field, these rows offer a little bit of elevation so you can see side-to-side without turning your neck constantly. Similar views can be found in Diamond sections A-F and the front rows of nearby 200s sections - but the Diamond Boxes come with a higher price-tag and there is a lot of distracting foot traffic in front of the 200s sections.

For fans looking for an all-around comfortable experience, the loge level offers excellent views and excellent protection from the elements. These seats slightly overhang the sections below so that the front rows are closer to the field than the back rows of the 200s - and all loge seats feel closer to the field than you might expect. The seats down the line don't offer the best angle towards home plate, so we recommend aiming for sections 306-317 as a first choice.

Among seats to avoid at a Royals game, there are three items to consider:

  • Outfield seats - especially those in right field - are exceptionally sunny. Especially in the late afternoon and early evening while the sun is setting, there will be a strong glare looking towards home plate.
  • The same rows in 200s sections that provide the best cover will also have somewhat-limited views due to the overhang. Sit in rows NN or below for the best views.
  • The upper deck is one of the largest in the major leagues - and rows at the top are way up there. Unless you're attending a playoff game or have to be out of the sun, sitting above row HH in the 400s sections is strongly discouraged.

Rows H-L in Sections 418, 419, 420 and 421

  • Birds eye view of the entire field from behind home plate
  • Simply comfortable views with excellent access to the view level concourse so trips are short and you can get back to watching the game
  • Head-on view to the videoboard makes it easy to see replays and keep up on stats

Rows S-X in Sections 119, 120, 121 and 122

  • Brilliant views from the infield
  • These rows are just in front of the walkway so you have easy access to the concourse without the distraction of fans walking in front of you
  • Completely unobstructed views of the entire field scoreboard

Sections A, B, C and D

  • Excellent elevation for seeing from foul line to foul line with comfort
  • Perfect location behind home plate
  • Exclusive amenities as part of the diamond boxes, including lounge access and wait service

Sections 306, 307, 308 and 309

  • Excellent elevation and overhanging the 200 level makes you feel right on top of the field
  • Little concern about sun and rain so you can keep watching the game even through the elements
  • Closer to the field than the last rows of the 200s sections
