About the Seats
Getting to these seats early was a mistake as the sun was blasting right into my eyes prior to the 7:10PM first pitch. And maybe the section had not been thoroughly swept out prior to the game, but there were a good number of pigeons hanging out nearby, one of which almost flew right into my head.
But in terms of the view to the game, I don't know if it gets much more frustrating than this. The railings block out a large portion of the right side of the infield, and you can forget about being able to see home plate or the mound if sitting casually in the seat. The right field line and Astros dugout on the first base line are completely gone as well, and leaning far forward will be your only saving grace. The one cool thing that the railings do not block is the view of the Houston skyline, which is quite impressive from these upper level seats.
Overall I would not recommend these front row seats, and would advise fans to look a few rows higher up to avoid the frustration caused by the railings....More
