Best Seats for Great Views of the Field at Nationals Park

Recommended seats are highlighted on the map

With the upper deck (also known as the Gallery and Upper Gallery) providing more of a birds eye perspective for a ballgame at Nationals Park, we recommend sticking to the 100 and 200 levels when searching for good all around views of the field during a Nats game.

Some of the best options are found in the middle rows of the lower 100 level sections closest to the dugouts. Sit too low and it can be difficult to pick up all the details, but if you go too high you miss out on the excitement of being close to the field. Rows N-Z and AA-GG give a perfect blend of ideal viewing height and close proximity to the diamond. Sections 129-132 keep you closer to the Nats dugout on the first base side, but from here you are likely to see more sun during a day game. On the third base side, sections 113-116 are closer to the visitor dugout and will get the sun at their back sooner. Sit closer to the outside edge of the infield, especially sections 113-114 and 131-132, to avoid the protective netting.

Many fans love the views from behind home plate at a baseball game, and you can find excellent ones in the front rows of sections 120-121 and 124-125 at Nationals Park. These seats have impressive proximity to home plate and the on deck circles, and you'll be able to pick up the break on the pitches with ease. Rows A-H here are also a part of the PNC Diamond Club, which allows you to order food and beverage right from your seats rather than having to miss the action on the field during a trip to the concourse. We recommend avoiding these rows in sections 122 and 123 as there is a railing on the home plate side of the section which creates an awful viewing obstruction.

The second tier of seating at Nationals Park has a great perspective thanks to the perfect viewing height just above the 100 level sections, and seats closer to the infield don't leave you feeling far at all. Sections 206-211 are great choices when sitting in rows C and higher as you will be clear of the safety railing at the front of the sections. Seats here also put the sun at your back sooner, while fans on the first base side have the sun in their eyes for a longer chunk of the game. These club seats don't come with in-seat wait service, but the smaller seating sections and private concourse help keep lines to a minimum for quicker trips away from the game.

Most of the recommendations above will come with a higher price tag due to the desirable positioning of the seats, but if you're looking for a cheaper option, consider seats in rows C-H of sections 202 and 203. You'll be at that great second tier seating height for a Nats game, and these seats also have a good angle into the infield. Similar options down the right field line wrap closer to the foul pole creating extremely difficult views of the right field corner, but as these left field options swing out wider in the stadium, you maintain a surprisingly good view to almost all areas of the field. From this position you also get the sun at your back sooner, rather than having to fight through the glaring shine to follow the game.  - RateYourSeats.com
