Busch Stadium Getting a Ball

Best Seats for Getting a Ball at Busch Stadium

Recommended seats are highlighted on the map

The sharp angles of seats down the line at Busch Stadium make it one of the more interesting ballparks for catching a foul ball. In particular, the seats known as the Dugout Boxes (132-139, 161-166) jut out towards the field and make them exciting places to sit when balls are fouled off. For fans on other levels of the park, seating on the infield does attract some souvenirs. However, note that some of the overhangs providing you shade will also prevent you from catching a ball.

The dugouts used to be a popular spot for getting a ball - as the players would typically toss some out before the game and between innings. But with the netting now extended to the ends of the dugouts, it is difficult to get a ball from these seats. Instead, consider the first ten rows of sections 141 and 159 which now receive a majority of these between-inning souvenirs.

As far as the fans are concerned, Busch Stadium is one of the most unfriendly ballparks for catching a home run. The large bullpens in left and right field swallow up a number of would-be souvenirs. For your best chance at going home with a longball, you'll want to find seats in one of the first five rows of the outfield. The dimensions of Busch Stadium, coupled with some space between the fence and fans, make it unlikely that balls reach any of the higher rows.  - RateYourSeats.com
