"Right Next to the Monster"

Seat Review From Grandstand 33, Row 5, Seat 4
Jun 2016


If I leaned forward I could see home plate OK around the beam, but if I was just sitting back comfortably I couldn't see anything near the batters box. Seats 1 through 3 were even worse, so I felt really bad for the fans to my right. Seats 5 and higher have far superior views, but put you further from the lone aisle which is at the right side of the row (at Seat 1).

Views of the center field scoreboards were not all that great, but I will admit that it was kind of fun being so close to the Green Monster, watching balls bounce off during deep left field shots.

Concessions require a bit of a walk, but the shade and cover was a nice perk to have given the longer walks and poorer views.

Best for... being in the shade

Avoid if... you want to watch the game, you are bringing the family

    Clear views from the first 2 rows

    Grandstand 33, Row 1-2

    At Rows 1 and 2 in Grandstand 33 you will be safely in front of any obstruction caused by the support pillar at the right (located at Row 2). Sit any higher and you do run the risk of any obstructed view from that right side pillar.

    Not easy to find a clear infield view

    Grandstand 33, Row 3-15

    Grandstand 33 is a smaller section located right next to the monster in the left field corner, and unless you're in either Rows 1 or 2, you'll have a difficult time trying to find a clear view to the infield. Your best bet is stay either in a low row (3 through 6) near the left side of the section, or in a higher row (12 or above) near the right aisle.

    • "Slightly Obstructed, But Great"

      (Grandstand 12) - -

      Seat 7 was slightly obstructed by a pole, but overall they were great.

    • "Never Again!"

      (Grandstand 29) - -

      The view could not possibly have been any worse. The beam right in front of the seats was in terrible position, blocking any view of the batters box or home plate area. Had I been in seat 1 or 2, I could have seen some of home plate, although you'd be following the pitch through the beam as it mak...

    • "Pretty good seats if you don't mind the support poles"

      (Grandstand 10) - -

      For affordable seats, they weren't awful. The view of the diamond included a support pole, but it was strategically placed between the pitcher's mound and home plate, so you could see the throw and batter's response pretty well. If you wanted to see anything on the jumbo screen (replays or any oth...
