Fenway Park

"Perfect Placement Between Beams"

Seat Review From Grandstand 26, Row 15, Seat 15
Jun 2016

Comments

My seat was three rows from the top of the grandstand level, so I went in expecting to have a beam directly in my line of sight and ruining my day at the ballpark. But much to my surprise and delight, my seats was almost perfectly positioned where the beam to my left was just beyond the infield dirt at third base, and the beam to my right was just behind the home plate umpire!

I could see the entire infield without obstruction, so I chalked this one up to a very lucky success. No views of the center field videoboard, and plays in the left field corner were a mystery, but there are TV monitors mounted to the ceiling to provide some relief.

The seats aren't the most comfortable as they are very old, which is great for adding character to the experience of being at Fenway, but not so great for sitting for 9 innings straight.

Had I been just a few seats further to my right, the view would have been far more difficult with the beam to my right cutting off parts of the infield. So if you can, stick to seats 13 through 22 for the best views from Row 15.

Best for... bringing the family, being in the shade

No obstruction concerns in the first row

Grandstand 26, Row 1

Seats in Grandstand 26 Row 1 have nothing to worry about in regard to support beams blocking the view of the infield.

Limited views at the right side

Grandstand 26, Row 2-18

If you can get a seat in the first row of Grandstand 26, opt for seats at the left side of the section. Fans near the right aisle will have a very limited view of the pitchers mound due to the support pillar.

  • "Close to Amenities with a Decent View"

    (Grandstand 27) - -

    My view was pretty good considering I was rolling the dice on the Grandstand level not knowing if I would have a clear view to the field. I was at the far edge of the visitors dugout on the third base line, which meant I had to turn a bit to the right to watch the infield and the batters box. But ...

  • "Somewhat obstructed view"

    (Grandstand 22) - -

    Somewhat obstructed view. Crowd was not very lively and turned around to comment to us that we were being too loud when we were cheering.

  • "Convenient and shaded, but crapshoot view"

    (Grandstand 18) - -

    Last row in the section, but there's nothing really nearby to walk to. You're taking a gamble sitting here. Seats 1-4 seem to be safe but anything to the left will deal with the pole. And all seats will deal with the overhang. Small tvs are pretty much worthless.
