Oakland Coliseum

"Good view close to the field"

Seat Review From Section 110, Row 5, Seat 4
May 2014

Comments

This was my third straight day visiting the ballpark. The first two days I sat in the 200 level and then right behind home plate. I think I liked these seats the best.

It was 95 degrees, and I got one helluva sunburn to prove it. There's no escaping the sun here during day games and even during the beginning of night games. So if you're sensitive to the sun, stay far, far away!

The view is pretty good -- just past first base into right field. Row 5 is the fifth row of seating in the section, though there a couple rows of field boxes right in front of you as well. I'll admit that I was severely jealous when they kept bringing down cold drinks and ice cream to the field seats. These seats don't enjoy the same benefits, but the view is just as good.

You are really close to the field, and it's obvious pre-game. Most kids nearby got a ball before game from the visiting White Sox players, and autographs were frequent. And during the game, foul balls were pretty close and came in fast.

Of course, being close to the field meant a mile walk up the stairs to Row 8 and the concourse. Fortunately the men's bathroom is literally the first entry up the stairs. Plenty of different beer options around, but food options are really boring.

If I were ranking just seats in the Coliseum, these would probably rate higher. But compared to other ballparks, they're just slightly above average. I'd sit here again, but I won't make the mistake of forgetting the sun block.

Best for... watching the game, being close to the action, catching a foul ball

Avoid if... you don't want a sun burn

  • "Nice view close to home plate; beware the sun during day games"

    (Section 119) - -

    Thoroughly enjoyed these MVP Infield seats. Good atmosphere. The crowd in section 120 right next door and behind the dugout was really energetic and received a couple game balls at the end of innings. Just beware the strong sun during day games. There's no cover and it can get hot.

  • "Great seats for the price, no foul balls though"

    (Section 123) - -

    We had balcony (200 level) seats last time and for a few dollars more these were much better. Could actually see the players. It was close to vendors and the restrooms. We didn't catch any foul balls though, those were more to the right of us. We were quite happy with seats. I also want to s...

  • "Good view of entire field"

    (Section 123) - -

    Good view from these seats. We were in shade by about 3:30pm.
