Best Seats for Kids and Family

Going to a White Sox game is one of the most family-friendly summertime events in Chicago. The ballpark offers convenient parking, easy public transportation and a number of fun things to do and see once inside the ballpark. Among the most popular attractions at U.S. Cellular Field are the Fundamentals Deck and fireworks.

For kids aged 13 and under, the Fundamentals deck in left field is a must-visit attraction. Kids will be able to run the bases, hit from the batting cages and work on their pitching mechanics in a dedicated training area. Consider visiting the Fundamentals Deck when the gates open so you don't miss any of the game, or sit near sections 159, 356 or 558 for quick access to the kids deck.

In addition to an area for the kids to play, the White Sox also put on a fireworks display after most Friday and Saturday night games. Even if you don't attend a weekend game, fireworks are still set off after White Sox home runs and White Sox victories. With the fireworks being shot off from behind the stadium in center field, the absolute best seats to see the fireworks are in sections 516-524. You and your family will enjoy a comfortable head-on view of the show and a decent view of the game.

Additional considerations when bringing the family (both young and old) to a White Sox game are the weather and easy concourse access. During day games, only the upper rows of the 100 level and 500 level are guaranteed to be in the shade. Unfortunately, you'll have to walk up a number of stairs in the upper level to reach the shaded portions. As a result, we recommend the highest rows of the 100 level bowl for families who wish to remain out of the elements and close to amenities.

Rows 1-7 in Sections 516, 518, 520 and 522

  • Absolute best seats to see the fireworks displays
  • Sit in a lower row to avoid walking up and down stairs on visits to concession stands and restrooms
  • Typically among the lowest-priced tickets in the stadium – perfect for bringing the entire family

Rows 34-37 in Sections 109, 110, 111 and 112

  • Seats are shaded and covered to protect from the sun and rain
  • Little-to-no stairs to walk to reach restrooms, concessions and other amenities
  • Lower level seating provides access to more amenities and better views of the game

Best Seats for Getting a Ball

For fans hoping to come home from a White Sox game with a souvenir, there are a few different seating options for catching a foul ball or a home run.

New Netting Makes Foul Balls Tougher to Come By

Guaranteed Rate Field has an average amount of foul territory down each line. Prior to 2019 a fair number of balls would make it into the stands. However, with new netting that extends all the way around the lower ball, foul balls are becoming harder and harder to come by.

The new netting protects fans from fast-moving foul balls

Left-handed batters tend to foul the ball off between sections 140 and 149, while right-handed hitters usually pepper sections 115 through 124. The protective netting makes it more difficult to get a ball in one of the lower rows - but popups can make it to every row except those under the overhang.

Young kids used to do well in the first few rows behind the dugouts, but the netting has made it more difficult. Now-a-days, even being at the edge of the dugout (sections 121 and 143) is not a sure fire way to score a ball from the players heading back to the dugout. Tim Anderson; however, is known for throwing a ball over the net to about row 25 in sections 141-144.

Foul balls do make it to the club level, with the highest likelihood coming in sections 324-340. However, with only five rows in each of these sections, balls are just as likely to bounce off the facade as they are to stay in the seats.

Upper deck sections 524-540 occasionally see foul balls, but typically only in the first few rows.

Where to Catch a Home Run Ball at a White Sox Game

As far as home runs are concerned, the first seven rows in left-field see a majority of the action from right-handed batters. Unfortunately, the White Sox bullpen occupies this area in front of sections 157 and 158. As an alternative, consider the front of sections 159-161 which make up the left-field power alley.

On the right-field side, the visitor bullpen and swallows up a lot of souvenirs that would have been destined for fans in sections 104 and 105. That leaves the Goose Island as the best place to get a ball from a left-handed hitter. And even if you don't get a ball, you've got yourself a seat in one of the coolest areas of the ballpark.

Rows 1-7 in Sections 159, 160 and 161

  • Highest concentration of home runs from right-handed batters
  • Don’t forget the sunscreen and a hat for day games!

Best Seats for Impressing a Guest

When looking to entertain a guest at a White Sox game, the first seats that come to mind are the Scout Seats located directly behind home plate. These seats offer fans the best U.S. Cellular Field has to offer in terms of proximity, service and amenities. Ticketholders will enjoy a pre-game meal, unlimited food and drink during the game, in-seat wait service and some of the best home plate views.

A less expensive option to consider is the club level. The entire 300 level is made up of exclusive club seating, which features in-seat wait service and a furnished club lounge that wraps around the bowl of the ballpark.

Other impressive options include the Home Plate Club and seats directly behind the White Sox dugout.

Sections 320, 322, 324 and 326

  • Great views from behind home plate with elevation
  • Club level amenities including upscale food options and access to climate controlled lounges
  • In-seat wait service, which allows fans to get food without leaving their seats

Home Plate Club

  • All-inclusive seating with open bar and buffet
  • Extra-padded seats in a covered seating area
  • In-seat wait service

Sections 130S, 131S, 133S and 134S

  • Closest seats to the batter-pitcher exchange
  • All-inclusive food, beverage and pre-game meal
  • Opportunity to be on television

Rows 5-9 in Sections 137, 138, 139 and 140

  • Within five rows of the White Sox dugout
  • As close as you can get to Sox players
  • Excellent views of the game from the infield

Rows 1-3 in Sections 128, 129, 135 and 136

  • Within three rows of the field - some of the closest seats to the action
  • Sections 135-136 are just a few feet from the Sox on-deck circle (128/129 are near the visitor warm-up area)
  • Incredible field level views keep you engaged in the action

Best Seats for Partying and Socializing

U.S. Cellular Field is better known for its family-friendliness than for its rousing social scene. Never-the-less, there are a few areas of the ballpark that cater to fans who are interested in hanging out with friends or trying out a new beer.

For the 21 and older crowd, the Bullpen Sports Bar in right field is a popular destination. The bar is open to all fans aged 21 and older who already have a game ticket. Fans can enjoy the game from field level with chairs set at tables or head inside for additional bar-style seating, field views and televisions. All seating is first-come, first-serve with some outdoor seating (on the second tier above the bar) subject to an additional fee. To get the most bang for your buck, purchase an inexpensive ticket on the 500 level, get to the stadium when the gates open (90 minutes before first pitch) and head to the Sports Bar entrance at Gate 2. For the price of your upper deck ticket, you'll be able to enjoy the game from the lower level and have plenty of beer money left over.

Another recommended option for fans looking to hang out is in the LF bleachers in sections 160-164. These are traditional bleacher-style seats (no armrests) and are typically the cheapest lower level seats for a Sox game. These seats are directly in the sun for afternoon games, but you'll be close to the rain shower in section 162 where you can cool off. From there you can head to the Brew House in Section 161 or towards the Frozen Zone in center field where they serve daiquiris and margaritas.

Sections 104 and 105

  • Close to the best beer selections at USCF: Korner Beer at 106, Brew House at 103 and Leine Lounge at 102
  • Sip a beer and yell at the opposing team’s relievers as they warm-up in the bullpen in front of 104 and 105
  • Close to the entrance for the open-admission Bullpen Sports Bar

Sections 160, 161, 162 and 163

  • Bleacher-style seating in the sun – the way baseball was meant to be
  • Cool off with a beer from the nearby Brew House, a frozen cocktail from the Frozen Zone or a trip to the famed shower in 162
  • Always among the cheapest lower level tickets

The Goose Island

  • Located in front of the Goose Island Bar
  • All seats and standing areas come with a drink rail
  • Best place in the stadium to grab a 312 and watch the Sox!

Best Seats for Visiting Team Fans

Fans visiting U.S. Cellular Field and cheering for the away team should almost always consider lower level seats before anything else. Fans with 500 level tickets are not permitted on the 100 level and may miss out on some regional food favorites found on the lower seating bowl.

If you're visiting for the first time, take a lap around lower concourse to scope out the local fare. Polish sausages, Chicago-style hot dogs, Latin cuisine and local beers will make you feel like a Chicagoan, even if you're only in town for the weekend.

As is the case with most ballparks, the best seats for away fans will be near the visitor dugout or the visitor bullpen. These sections will have the highest concentration of visiting fans and will keep you close to your favorite players. At U.S. Cellular Field, there is a large cost difference between these options. Sections 122-127 behind the visiting team dugout are often among the most expensive seats for a Sox game. Meanwhile, sections 104 and 105 above the visitor bullpen are usually among the cheapest lower level tickets due to their location in right-field.

If cost truly does not matter, you may consider the first few rows of sections 128 and 129. The visiting team on-deck circle is just in front of these seats and you can often get great views into the visitor dugout.

Rows 5-14 in Sections 122, 123, 124 and 125

  • Within ten rows of the visitor dugout
  • Highest concentration of fans cheering for the away team
  • Excellent seats for staying close to the field

Sections 104 and 105

  • Row 9 in these sections is the first row behind the visitor bullpen
  • Watch your favorite pitcher warm up and be close to other visitor fans
  • Enjoy a number of local concession favorites only found on the 100 level

Best Seats for Great Views of the Field

When it comes to finding the best views at U.S. Cellular Field, personal preferences often come in to play. For our money, a comfortable view is just as important as an up-close view. As a result, it's not always the closest seats that earn the best marks.

Perhaps the best non-club seats at U.S. Cellular Field, the upper rows of Sections 130-134 offer some of the finest views of White Sox baseball. The elevation of these seats allows fans to see the entire field in a single glance without feeling like the game is moving too fast. And while these seats are behind the protective netting, it's less noticeable than in the lower rows.

Other outstanding options in the lower level include infield seating behind each dugout. Again, these seats offer comfortable views of the infield and unobstructed views of the outfield without too much head-turning. Contrast these seats to those down the line in the lower level where you must turn your head to see home plate if you are in a low row.

Generally speaking, club sections offer very good views of the field. However, the second deck does not protrude as much towards the field as in most ballparks. So while the views are quality, you don't feel as close to the action. Never-the-less, club seats offer one of the most comfortable views in the stadium. All areas of the ballpark and all scoreboards can be seen from most club sections.

Rows 20-37 in Sections 129, 130, 131 and 132

  • Elevated views from directly behind home plate
  • See the entire field and all scoreboards in a single glance
  • Close access to the concourse for quick trips to and from amenities

Sections 326, 328, 329 and 330

  • Perfect height for viewing baseball
  • Unobstructed views of the entire field and each of the scoreboards
  • In-seat wait service means less time away from the action

Rows 2-5 in Sections 529, 530, 531 and 533

  • Better-than-expected views from behind home plate
  • Easily the best views from the upper level
  • Excellent views of the scoreboards, fireworks and all parts of the field

Seating Tips & Advice

  • "Be Careful With 500 Level Aisle Seats in the First Two Rows" - When buying aisle seats in the first two rows of the 500 Level at U.S. Cellular Field, choose the aisle seats that are farther away from home plate. On the third base side, these are higher number seats on the left. On the first base side, these are lower number seats on the right. Otherwise, you run the risk of having your view completely blocked by the higher railings on the home plate side in front of each section.
