"Sit a Row or Two Back"

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

Comments

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.

  • "Great view!"

    (Section 442) - -

    Seats were about half way down first base line. The game was @ 1:15 and we were in the shade the entire time!! Loved the seats!

  • "Five railings in the way"

    (Section 453) - -

    By all means, do not sit here. The aisle seats behind homeplate in rows 7-9 are behind about five different railings. All-in-all, you have very little chance of seeing home-plate. Middle seats are fine, so are higher rows. But rows 7-9 in Sections 446-454 ought to be avoided.

  • "Better than most upper decks, but not great"

    (Section 442) - -

    By splitting the upper deck into the 300s and 400s, the Cardinals made it a lot easier to get to these seats. Even though these are fairly close to the top, the walk up the stairs is no problem. And you'll want to be in one of the upper rows here as they provide shade and are covered. These seats...
