Best Seats for Great Views of the Field at Citi Field

Recommended seats are highlighted on the map

Citi Field has many unique seating areas to choose from for a Mets baseball game, however you will typically find the best views of the field in the sections which keep you closer to the infield. Other than the uppermost 500 and the seats beyond the outfield wall, fans can find good views of a ballgame from a variety of areas at the ballpark.

Among the best options, but also some of the most expensive, are the premium Delta Club seats directly behind home plate. Sit in rows 11-18 of sections 13-17 and you will be amazed by the proximity to home plate and the on deck circles, while also having a one of a kind view of the ball as it leaves the pitchers hand. One of the great perks about sitting here is the in-seat wait service, allowing you to stay in your seat watching baseball rather than making trips to the concourse for food and beverage.

Further down the baselines and closer to the dugouts, rows 23 and up in sections 111-113 and 122-124 are some of our favorite seats for staying dialed in to the action at Citi Field. Aside from the more obvious benefits of great viewing angles to the middle of the infield and good proximity to the dugouts, these seating rows have an excellent elevation angle over fans in front. Sure, the lower rows get you closer to the field, however the seating is much shallower creating more potential for other fans in front to obstruct your view. You'll find more shade on the third base side (sections 122-124), and just be sure to avoid sections 114 and 121 as there are walls on the home plate side of the sections, creating a narrower viewing angle.

Also known as the Excelsior Level, the 300 tier offers fans an excellent perspective thanks to an ideal seating height above field level. Some of the best options on the Excelsior level are directly behind home plate in sections 318-320, where you will have expansive views to all areas of the field. These seats also get an excellent straight away perspective of the center field videoboard, and the smaller seating sections (no more than 6 rows) allow for speedy trips to the concourse and back to your seat.

Closer to the dugouts on the Excelsior level, sections 310-312 and 326-328 have the same great elevation and provide natural lines of sight to the heart of the infield. If sitting on the first base side (310-312), we recommend being in the higher rows (7-10) as this will give you better overhead coverage from the sun during a day game. On the third base side you get the sun at your back sooner, so it's a little safer to sit lower on the tier (opt for rows 2-10). Although, from these two areas we recommend avoiding the first row due to the safety railing, and the very back rows which start to get tunnel vision from the overhanging upper deck above.

If the budget leaves you searching on the upper seating deck, we recommend sticking with the 400 level seats as these sit much closer to the field and have less railings to battle with for a clear view of the field. The upper deck is very exposed with little protection from the sun, so you will want to put the sun at your back sooner (on the third base side) during a day game at Citi Field. Sections 421-423 are the best options here, thanks to excellent positioning with the middle of the infield. We recommend avoiding the front row here as the railing can be a distraction while trying to watch the ballgame.  - RateYourSeats.com
