Mets game? Take our quick advice.

This park is masterfully designed. No bad seats and the colors are pretty magnificent. Downside is that the atmosphere is a little weird.

Tip #1: Download our amazing free stadium guide.

How to get there

Lots of parking and it’s surprisingly accessible to the nearby highways. You also have the subway (7 train), which is a fun option.

Where to sit

You absolutely can’t go wrong no matter where you sit – the park is that well designed. Cheap seats are excellent. But more expensive seats are also worth it.

Batting practice

It’s a huge field, so not as many balls go into the stands. But there usually aren’t a ton of people who show up for BP, so that helps your chances.

What to eat

Super food options here. Lots of local stuff that’s creative, tasty, and easy to get to from your seats. Best bet is hit the Shake Shack for a burger and a shake.

Top 3 “This Can’t Be Real” Baseball Stadium Moments

Every time you go to the ballpark – you never know what can happen. That’s why we created this guide. Over the years, we’ve had amazing things occur that have led to unforgettable memories.

 

Coors Field – looking at the view

Our first trip to Coors field, we lucked into sitting in the purple row (exactly 1 mile high). Sitting there watching a game with the Rocky Mountains in the background – there’s nothing like it in the world.

 

Mets on the field

We got a tour of Citi Field before the game. After the tour, we were on our way out when an usher said: “You don’t have to go, just go on inside.” I think he mistakenly thought we were VIPs or something. We walked through the empty ballpark, took a turn down a corridor, and suddenly we were on the field, not 10 feet away from the Mets taking batting practice. And when they were done, the Dodgers came out.

 

Jeter’s last game

We expected this to be amazing, but to have it end with Jeter hitting a walkoff was the greatest baseball experience of our lives.
