Minute Maid Park

"Good upper deck positioning spoiled by railings"

Seat Review From Section 418, Row 1, Seat 11
Apr 2014

Comments

Directly behind home plate on the upper seating tier provides a good position to see most areas of the field, but the railings cause a big issue when watching the pitchers mound and batters box. The railing just in front of my seats as well as the railing in the section below were annoyingly in the way of viewing the pitchers mound and the batters box. I either had to lean far forward to try and get a clear view, or slouch down like a slob to get the mound and home plate between railings so I could somewhat see both areas at the same time.

Other than the railings though, these would have been great upper deck seats. I could see both outfield corners, both dugouts, and had a good view of the main scoreboard above right field. Cup holders were a nice touch for upper deck seats, and were mounted to the railing just in front of the seats.

If you don't mind leaning forward for the entire game, these seats might be a good inexpensive option. But if you are like me and prefer to sit back in the seat and be able to still see the game, I would not recommend sitting here.

Avoid if... you want to watch the game

  • "Support pillars block out the mound"

    (Section 423) - -

    The upper sections on the first base side have a few support pillars that you should watch out for, and Section 423 Row 17 Seat 14 is a shining example. A beam supporting the roof is located at row 9 seat 15, and blocked my view of the pitchers mound entirely. I promptly moved on to greener pastu...

  • "Miserable view through 2 sets of railings"

    (Section 414) - -

    If you want to be able to lean back in your seat and watch an Astros game, this seat will NOT be for you. From this height and positioning at the front of the section, there are two sets of railings that impede your view down to the field (one at the front of the section, and another in front of th...

  • "AMAZING!"

    (Section 415) - -

    I bought these seats for my dad on fathers day and he couldn't have been happier! besides seats 21-23 (where we put the girls) the view was great! The three seats above had some railing issues they said. The seats have a great view of the whole field, and an eye level view of the scoreboard. Conces...
