We recommend that fans be very careful when looking at seats on the Terrace Level at Wrigley Field. It is easy to get distracted by the great prices for a lower level ticket, however these aisles are well known for their viewing obstructions caused by the beams which support the upper deck.
If you can find a seat in the first 6 rows (which are also known as the Terrace Box rows), you need not worry about your seat number as you will be safely below the obstructing beams. But as soon as you move into rows 7 and higher (known as the Terrace Reserved seats), you potentially put yourself at risk of a blocked view. The majority of the beams are located in seats 1 and 101 (on the walkway aisles) of row 6, so we recommend sitting towards the middle of the row if you find yourself in rows 7 and higher.
As you get to the higher rows (15 and above) the overhanging upper deck above begins to drastically minimize your view of fly balls as well as the center field scoreboard and outfield videoboards.
While these seats do come with a good amount of risk in terms of view, they are also among the best places to find complete shade during a sunny day game at Wrigley. Some of the best options here will be the first 6 rows of seating in Aisles 213-216, free from obstruction, closer to the Cubs dugout, and very good protection from the weather.
