"Sit a Row or Two Back"

Seat Review From Section 449, Row 4, Seat 13
Jul 2014


Row 4 is the first row in this section. Unfortunately, the first row in the upper deck comes with the railing. When you sit back comfortably, you're looking through the vertical bars of the railing. You could easily see the batter/pitcher exchange between bars, but once the ball was hit, your vision becomes distracted by the railing.

If you sit up a row or two, the railing won't be as much of an issue.

There were about 20 seats in the row, but the front row has a little more legroom than higher rows, so getting in and out isn't so hard. I did like being right at the stairs to go down to the concourse. But you do still have to walk down those stairs to get food and go to the bathroom. All 400 level sections require walking stairs.

We got to the ballpark at about 5:00 on a really hot day. But the sun was behind us and wasn't an issue at all. Good seats for being covered from the elements, too, as the roof extends over these seats.

Great arch view and a very friendly section overall! When sitting in the upper deck, I love sitting right behind home plate, just wish I sat a couple rows higher.

Best for... bringing the family

Avoid if... you want to watch the game

    Underrated seats.

    Section 449

    You can see the action from a really good angle even though it is not particular close. Even though these seats are farther away, the angle is so good.

    • "I think this seat was a mistake"

      (Section 454) - -

      This particular seat is right up the aisle. The aisle should have continued because there's no way anyone would want to sit here. I just sat for a couple minutes during a pitching change and that's about all I could handle. Other seats in this section seem to be mostly good. Nice view of the arch...

    • "Gorgeous view of the whole field!"

      (Section 451) - -

      Wow, talk about a ballpark view! You've really got it here. You can see the whole field wonderfully, but you also get maybe the best arch view at Busch Stadium! These seats basically epitomize what you want out of upper deck seats at Busch. No railing in your way, staring right at the scoreboard and...

    • "Too high to see"

      (Section 441) - -

      Way too far from the action
