Best Seats for Great Views of the Field at Fenway Park

Recommended seats are highlighted on the map

Based on capacity, Fenway Park is one of the five smallest ballparks in the Major Leagues. The intimate setting of the ballpark keeps more fans closer to the field and doesn't subject anyone to an upper deck or nosebleed seating. As a whole, this yields better views of the game and a more engaged fan experience. Never-the-less, there are some seats that truly shine when it comes to finding the best view at a Red Sox game.

The most comfortable outstanding views will come behind home plate in the EMC and Home Plate Pavilion Clubs. Both of these areas offer fans an elevated look at the historic ballpark without being too far away. Ticketholders will have clear sitelines towards the Green Monster, the center field scoreboard and every unique inch of fair territory.

For those demanding a great view closer to field level, consider the lower boxes located near the infield. These seats begin about 15 rows from the field - directly behind the dugout/field boxes and a small walkway. Their modest elevation and slight distance from the field offers fans more comfortable sitelines and make it easier to track the game as it moves from home plate to the outfield. Our favorite among these are lower box rows CC and higher behind the dugouts. The walkway tends to get crowded with fans - even when the ball is in play - so it's best to avoid the first two rows (AA-BB). You'll also save some money not sitting directly behind home plate and won't have to look through the screen to see a majority of the action.

If you're visiting Fenway and looking for a view that is symbolic of a historic ballpark, consider box sections 72-82 down the left-field line. The angle of these seats has been dictated by Fenway's placement within the neighborhood and they face back towards home plate instead of into the outfield. Recently, other ballparks - including Minute Maid Park and Busch Stadium - have emulated this unique seating layout. We recommend one of the first few rows where you'll feel like you're seated on the field.

Of course, discussions about the best views of Fenway Park would be incomplete without at least mentioning the potential for obstructed seating. For those worried about sitting behind a pole, simply avoid all Grandstand sections. Most Grandstand seats come with some level of obstruction, so it's best to avoid them altogether.  - RateYourSeats.com

Ratings, Reviews & Recommendations

  • "Eliminate viewing obstructions by sitting in Row 1"

    -

    The only row where you'll be safe from an obstructed view is Row 1. The beam at the right side of the front row doesn't impact the view for fans at the front, but will be endlessly frustrating for those on the right aisle in Rows 2 and higher.

  • "Clear views from the first 2 rows"

    -

    At Rows 1 and 2 in Grandstand 33 you will be safely in front of any obstruction caused by the support pillar at the right (located at Row 2). Sit any higher and you do run the risk of any obstructed view from that right side pillar.

  • "Clear views of pitchers mound and batters box in Rows 1 through 3"

    -

    Although you might have some difficult views to second base in the seats on the right side of the row, all seats in Rows 1-3 of Grandstand 17 will have unobstructed views to both the pitchers mound and batters box. For the best views here, sit near the left aisle.
