About the Seats
These seats are in the first section of the cheaper upper deck seats. They have a great view of the out-of-town scoreboard and the main scoreboard in CF. However, there are seats in this section and in other sections in the 500 level that should absolutely be avoided. The aisle seats nearest home plate (Seat 1 on the 3B side) in the first two rows have a view that is almost completely obstructed by the railing. This makes it near-impossible to see the entire batter-pitcher exchange without looking at some railings. In turn, this made it difficult to see hard-hit ground balls. All the seats in Row 3 and above are fine -- as are seats in the middle of the row -- but if you're choosing aisle seats, choose the ones away from home plate.
Despite the poor view, being on the aisle one step away from the tunnel makes getting to the concourse an absolute breeze. The restrooms were about three sections away -- so not perfect -- but there are an abundance of permanent and moveable concession stands, which is rare for an upper deck.
Even in April on a 40 degree day, I walked away with pretty severe sunburn for a 1:00 game. There's no chance at shade for an afternoon game in these seats so bring the sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, nine umbrellas and a tarp.
Vendors hawking beer, soft drinks, candy, hot dogs and popcorn were aplenty -- so even if you're seated in a higher row, the concessions will come to you....More
