  • Team has one price point for box seats
  • Sitting in the bleachers costs just $5
The outfield bleachers are Canal Park's most affordable option and provide a great view.

As is often the case in the minors, Canal Park’s seating is comprised of one seating bowl at field level. Up top, you’ll find the suite level on the same level as the press box. Tickets for RubberDucks games are affordable; you’ll pay no more than $9 for the best seats in the house, which is pretty good by Eastern League standards.

Canal Park can handle more than 9,000 fans, and the bulk of these spaces are box seats. The concourse level seating bowl, which features more than 7,500 seats, costs $9 for adults and $8 for youth between the ages of four and 12 and seniors 60 and over. Unlike some parks, in which the seats directly behind home plate are a little more costly, these prices are consistent from foul pole to foul pole. So whether you enjoy a home plate view, being perched above a dugout or a front-row seat down the line, you’ll pay the same price. The park’s budget option is the general admission bleachers, which seat nearly 1,000 fans and are located in the right field corner. This is the lone spot to sit behind the outfield fence (a spot behind the fence in left field is reserved for groups) and if you’re eager to catch a home run, this is the spot for your. A ticket in the bleachers costs $5, regardless of your age. (Children three and under are always free, regardless of where they sit.)

When I visited Canal Park in May of 2013, the attendance was surprisingly low, which meant I happily tested out a variety of seats throughout the game. Despite their distance from home plate, I really enjoyed the bleachers (and had them to myself for a few innings, believe it or not). From here, you’ve got a great view of the field and can also watch both bullpens, which are to your right.
