Tropicana Field Seat Views

Best Seats for Great Views of the Field

Owing to its nature as baseball's only permanent indoor stadium, Tropicana Field gets a bad rap as a bad place to watch a game. While the dome certainly lacks the appeal of offering "outdoor" or "night" baseball, small crowds and cheap ticket prices allow fans the opportunity to purchase great seats even on a modest budget.

Tropicana Field is a fairly straight-forward ballpark with three main seating decks. Lower level sections are labeled in the 100s and include odd-numbered sections on the third-base side and even-numbered sections on the first-base side. Views from both sides of the field are fairly equitable, although sitting on the third-base side gives you a head-on view of the videoboard in right-field.

While most fans will argue that the best views in the 100 level sections are in the seats closest to the field, it's worth pointing out that the front rows of these sections are pushed back farther from the field than you might expect. There is extra foul territory on the infield in front of the dugouts which means that fans in sections 101-118 aren't as close to the field as they might like to be.

As an alternative to the expensive tickets in sections 101-118, consider the first six rows in sections 119-124. These rows are truly at field level and provide an excellent view of the field and into the dugouts. If you don't mind being a little bit farther from the field, the elevated rows in sections 101-118 offer one of the most comfortable views from the lower level. Specifically, we like rows EE-JJ which are located just in front of the walkway.

Another opportunity for excellent elevated views comes from the 200 level. While these are club level seats in most ballparks, they are common seating at Tropicana Field and are generally much less expensive than the lower level seats below. Because these sections hang over the lower level (and create obstructed views in some 100 level seats), they are closer to the field than one might expect. Again, we recommend seats on the third-base side where you have a better view of the videoboard, and we also recommend skipping row A where the railing can sometimes be a distraction.

With relatively small crowds for Rays game, the upper deck at Tropicana Field is largely under-sold. Despite being mostly empty, 300 level seats behind home plate might actually be the best cheap seats in all of baseball. Because the 200 level hangs over much of the lower level - and there is only a modest suite level above the 200s - the front rows of the upper deck are closer to the field than at most stadiums. If you're seated in one of the first seven rows of these sections, expect a view similar to what you'd get in club level seats at a modern stadium. Just don't venture up much higher - the desolate highest rows (N and above) are some of the worst cheap seats in all of baseball.

An additional note when considering lower level tickets:

  • There are some truly horrific obstructed and claustrophobic views from 100 level seats above the walkway. While the worst views are in rows UU and higher, we also recommend skipping rows PP-TT because of their boxed-in feel and the distraction of people in the walkway.

Rows B-G in Sections Section 119, Section 120, Section 121 and Section 122

  • Closest seats to the field
  • Cool view of the action from field level
  • Great looks into both dugouts

Rows EE-JJ in Sections Section 101, Section 102, Section 103 and Section 105

  • Best views from the lower level with elevation
  • Located just in front of the walkway for easy access
  • Best view of the center-field and right-field scoreboards

Rows B-H in Sections Section 207, Section 209, Section 211 and Section 213

  • Excellent elevated views from the 200 level
  • Little-to-no distraction from the netting behind home plate
  • Best view of the videoboard in right-field

Rows E-J in Sections Section 300, Section 301, Section 302 and Section 303

  • Some of the closest upper level seating in all of baseball
  • Excellent birds-eye view from behind home plate with minimal distraction from home plate netting
  • These rows have fewer seats than nearby rows for easy in-and-out

    Venue & Seating Questions

    • Which rows are closest to the front at Tropicana Field?

      In all cases, Row A is the closest row to the field. Single lettered rows (A-Z) are located closer to the front, and are followed by the double lettered rows (AA-ZZ) behind. However, it is important to note that almost every single section starts with a different letter. You can view row layouts by clicking on a desired section on our Tropicana Field Interactive Seating Chart.

    • What direction do the seat numbers run at Tropicana Field?

      At Tropicana Field, seat 1 will be on the left of all sections as you face the field of play.

    • Where is Suite 6 located at Tropicana Field?

      Suite 6 is located near home plate and just above Press Level Section 206. Suites provide ticket holders with a more private experience at Tropicana Field, with optional private catering available for purchase.

    • What is the obstruction in row 1 of the 200 level at Tropicana Field?

      Some tickets listed for sale at Tampa Bay Rays games will show an "obstructed view" warning. While this is a significant issue on the 100 level, some tickets in the first row of 200 level sections are being labeled with this warning as well. On a recent 3-game trip to Tropicana Field, we hunted down the reason(s) for this warning.

      As we suspected, this "obstructed" label refers to the railings at the front of each section. While these railings are highly distracting, they are an issue for upper level seating at almost every ballpark and arena in North America. Smaller fans and children may have to squirm a little bit to find a good viewing angle around the railing, but taller fans will hardly find it a distraction.

      Overall, we recommend sitting in row 2 or higher in the 200 level - just to avoid any potential railing issues. But at the same time, don't let the railing completely deter you from buying tickets in the first row if the price is right and ticket inventory is limited.

    • At which row is the lower level walkway at Tropicana Field?

      For fans seated in lower level sections 101-134 at Tropicana Field there is a walkway that separates these sections into lower and upper portions. The walkway runs around most of the lower bowl and provides access to the concourse tunnels where fans will find concessions and restrooms. In each of these sections, row JJ is the last row before the walkway begins. The walkway is comprised of space for fans to walk, along with a single row of wheelchair seating commonly labeled WCH. This accessible seating space is located directly behind row JJ.

      Tropicana Field lower level walkway
      Club seats on the first-base side of the field. These are just above the walkway (pictured in front of the section with wheelchair seating at the front).

      The walkway and wheelchair seating space occupy what would be rows KK-OO. Therefore, the first row above the walkway is labeled PP. For fans seated on the third-base side of the field, rows PP and higher are sometimes called the Loge seats, while the same seats in even-numbered sections 106-126 are part of the exclusive Rays Club.

      Because the walkway can become crowded with fans, views from the rows just above the walkway can sometimes be interrupted. Unless you're looking to sit in the Rays Club for its club benefits and comfortable seating, we recommend seats just in front of the walkway in rows FF-JJ. These seats will provide a nice elevated view of the field, quick walks to the concourse and no walkway distractions.

    • How many rows in each section at Tropicana Field?
      Each section has a varying amount of rows and seats. Find a section to see row and/or seat numbers.
    • Is seat number 1 on the left or right side of sections?
      As you look towards the field from your seats, lower number seats are on your right.
