Seats Behind Home Plate Will be in the Shade First
Yankee Stadium is fairly wide open, which makes it difficult to find good shade at the ballpark. Outfield seats in right field face west, so they should be avoided for late afternoon and evening games. For your best chance at shade, sit slightly on the first base side of home plate. Alternatively, the last few rows of the 200 and 400 levels are protected by an overhang. Unfortunately, nearly every row in the lower level is exposed to the elements. To search for tickets or to find out if your seats are protected from the sun or rain, follow the link below.

There are roughly 1,048 seats in the bleachers that have obstructed views of the opposite outfield.
Section 201 - The main obstructions are in sections 201 and 239. - If you're in Section 201, you want your seat number to be higher rather than lower, and vice-versa in Section 239. If you're seat one [in section 201], I'd suggest standing.
Section 239 - The main obstructions are in sections 201 and 239. - If you're in Section 201, you want your seat number to be higher rather than lower, and vice-versa in Section 239. If you're seat one [in section 201], I'd suggest standing.

Section 420A - Plexiglass would obstruct view in rows one and two.
Section 319 - Obstructed seats.
Section 110 - Terrible experience with obstructive seats. - First seat off aisle (think it was 15) could not view half the infield (homeplate to firstbase to thirdbase). Obstructed by handicap section. Even the guard told us to try to switch seats.
