Fenway Park Grandstand Infield Seating

SeatScore®

Sitting Here for a Baseball Game

Grandstand seats - especially on the infield - are the biggest gamble when it comes to obstructed seats. Even if you are not directly behind a support, you may encounter a pole when looking towards the pitcher's mound, second base or the outfield.

If having an obstructed view will ruin your outing, it's usually not worth the time and energy figuring out if your seat is obstructed or not. We recommend avoiding the entire Grandstand and focusing your search on other areas of the ballpark with clear sitelines.

So why sit in the Grandstand at all? There are two main reasons:

First, the Grandstand seats demonstrate the charm of Fenway Park better than any other area. The overhang, the support poles and the old-timey seats are a throwback to baseball in the first half of the 20th century.

Second, these Grandstand sections offer the best protection from the elements. Whether you're trying to stay dry on a rainy day - or cool on an August afternoon - the Grandstand has you covered, literally (Tip for families: to be closer to concessions and restrooms, choose sections 26-27 or 11-12)  - RateYourSeats.com

    Challenging views at the left side of the section

    Grandstand 14

    One of the larger grandstand sections, you can find some unobstructed views in the lower row seats near the right side of the section, but you will want to avoid being on the furthest right aisle seat. Other seating areas are more risky here, especially closer to the left side of the section where your view of the pitchers mound and batters box can be limited.

    Safe at the front

    Grandstand 15, Row 1

    You'll have clear, unobstructed views from any seat in Row 1 of Grandstand Section 15

    Most difficult views are near the ends - instead sit near the middle

    Grandstand 15, Row 2-19

    Other than in the front row, you will find some kind of frustrating obstruction in every row of Grandstand 15. Sit too far to the right and you lose the pitchers mound, too far left and you'll be blocked from the batters box. Your safest bet here is to as close to the middle of the row as possible.

    Sit in Row 1 for a clear view

    Grandstand 16, Row 1

    Views from the first row of Grandstand 16 are safely free of obstruction

    Avoid the aisles and opt for middle seats

    Grandstand 16, Row 2-19

    At the front row you won't have to deal with the beams blocking your view, but in the other rows you'll want to be in the middle seats. Sitting near the aisles will mean you're blocked out from the batters box (right aisle) or pitchers mound (left aisle)

    Clear views of pitchers mound and batters box in Rows 1 through 3

    Grandstand 17, Row 1-3

    Although you might have some difficult views to second base in the seats on the right side of the row, all seats in Rows 1-3 of Grandstand 17 will have unobstructed views to both the pitchers mound and batters box. For the best views here, sit near the left aisle.

    No pitchers mound view from right side

    Grandstand 17, Row 4-16

    Seats near the left aisle will be great, but closer to the right aisle in Rows 4 and higher in Grandstand 17 will leave you with a tough and sometimes non-existent view of the ball leaving the pitchers hand.

    Don't have to worry about the beams in Row 1

    Grandstand 18, Row 1

    There is a support beam which sits just 4 seats in from the right aisle and directly in the line for Row 1. There are no seats in Row 1 which will have an obstructed view, but be cautious if sitting any higher (Rows 2 and up)

    Stay within 6 seats of the left aisle

    Grandstand 18, Row 2-16

    Seats closer to the right side of Grandstand 18 will have to contend with the support beam for a view of the batters box and pitchers mound. But if you can stay no more than 6 seats in from the left aisle, you'll be left with tremendous views of the infield.

    Good viewing from the first 15 rows!

    Grandstand 19, Row 1-15

    You might lose some of the third base area from seats near the left aisle in Rows 5 and higher, but seats in Rows 1 through 15 in Grandstand 19 will have clear viewing angles to the pitchers mound, batters box, and the majority of the infield. Excellent option for fans searching for deals in the Grandstand, especially if you can find seats near the right side of the section.

    Blocked out from homeplate in the upper rows on the left aisle

    Grandstand 19, Row 16-18

    If you're sitting in the last few rows of Grandstand 19, be sure to avoid the left aisle as these seats have a difficult view of home plate and the batters box. Sitting in the middle or towards the right side of the section will help you avoid any viewing issues.

    Eliminate viewing obstructions by sitting in Row 1

    Grandstand 20, Row 1

    The only row where you'll be safe from an obstructed view is Row 1. The beam at the right side of the front row doesn't impact the view for fans at the front, but will be endlessly frustrating for those on the right aisle in Rows 2 and higher.

    Avoid the right aisle if you want to see either the pitcher or batter

    Grandstand 20, Row 2-18

    The beam at the right side or Row 1 could not be in a worse place for those sitting near the right aisle. You will struggle to see both the pitchers mound and the batters box - so avoid the seats near the right aisle at all costs. If you can find seats at the left side of the section though, you will be treated to excellent views of the game.

    Great Grandstand views in the first 8 rows

    Grandstand 21, Row 1-8

    Sitting in the first 8 rows ensures you'll have clear views of the pitchers mound, batters box, and most of the infield, no matter what seat number you end up with. For the absolute best views, stick near the right side of the section.

    Opt for the right side if possible

    Grandstand 21, Row 9-18

    Seats in Rows 9 and higher near the aisle at the left side of the section will have difficult views of the pitchers mound and shortstop area. Go for the seats on the right side of the section and you will have amazing unobstructed views of the infield.

    No beam issues from Row 1

    Grandstand 22, Row 1

    A seat in Row 1 of Grandstand 22 will ensure a clear view to the field. Fans in row 2 and higher will struggle to see the catcher and batter from seats near the right side of the section.

    Batters box blockout on the right

    Grandstand 22, Row 2-18

    Unless you were lucky enough to get a seat in Row 1, you'll struggle to see pretty much anything around home plate with a seat near the right aisle due to the support beam.

    Safely infront of the pillar

    Grandstand 23, Row 1

    All seats in Grandstand Section 23 Row 1 will be safely infront of the support pillar, allowing clear views to the infield.

    Issues on the left side

    Grandstand 23, Row 2-16

    Seats on the left half of the section will unfortunately have to contend with a support beam for a view of the pitchers mound and batters box. Instead, choose seats near the right side of the section for safer views of the entire infield.

    No obstructions in the first two rows

    Grandstand 24, Row 1-3

    Sitting in the first 3 rows of Grandstand 24 offer clear views to the majority of the infield. As you get higher in the section, the views begin to deteriorate thanks to the support beam in front of the left side of the section.

    Tough views of pitchers mound and left side of the infield

    Grandstand 24, Row 4-16

    While the seats at the right side of Grandstand 24 will have excellent views of the entire field, seats near the left aisle in Rows 4 and higher will have a tough time trying to get an obstructed view of the pitchers mound and the left side of the infield.

    Front row is the way to go

    Grandstand 25, Row 1

    Being in Row 1 will help you avoid any viewing issues when sitting in Grandstand 25

    Middle seats are the safest for clear views

    Grandstand 25, Row 2-18

    In most rows of Grandstand 25 (the exception being Row 1), the middle seats are going to be the safest bet for decent views to the field. Sitting within a few seats of the right aisle leaves the beam right between the pitchers mound and homeplate, leaving you tracking pitches through the obnoxious beam. And if you're near the left aisle, you

    No obstruction concerns in the first row

    Grandstand 26, Row 1

    Seats in Grandstand 26 Row 1 have nothing to worry about in regard to support beams blocking the view of the infield.

    Limited views at the right side

    Grandstand 26, Row 2-18

    If you can get a seat in the first row of Grandstand 26, opt for seats at the left side of the section. Fans near the right aisle will have a very limited view of the pitchers mound due to the support pillar.

    Need to be a few seats in from the right aisle

    Grandstand 27

    There is no espcaping an obstructed view in Grandstand 27 if you're looking by row number alone as even seats in Row 1 can have obstructed views near the right aisle. But if you can avoid the first 4 seats off the right aisle in any of the rows, you will be in great shape to see the entire infield without any limitation.

      My view was pretty good considering I was rolling the dice on the Grandstand level not knowing if I would have a clear view to the field. I was at the far edge of the visitors dugout on the third base line, which meant I had to turn a bit to the right to watch the infield and the batters box. But ...
