"Watch out for the Pigeons!"

Seat Review From Section 427, Row 1, Seat 13
Apr 2014


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.

Avoid if... you want to watch the game

      These are good seats if it were not for the constant flow of people coming and going to their seats throughout the game. I would say we spent about 1/4 to 1/3 of the game not being able to see the pitch to the plate. We will never sit in these seats again.

      Nothing wrong with Section 428, Row 7...but you don't want seats 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6...etc. -anything on that end of the row. First, there is a stairway rail blocking the first base area, but the worst is the people who just come to eat constantly going up and down the stairs. If they would just go b...
