Highlights
  • All box seats; no bleachers at Dow Diamond
  • Ample grass seating areas in outfield
Dow Diamond has numerous large grass areas for fans. These areas make up the bulk of the outfield and area also located down the lines.

Dow Diamond is one of the rare Minor League Baseball facilities that doesn't have any bleachers, which means you have the luxury of box-style seating throughout the park. Seating at Dow Diamond is simple -- box seats run essentially from the edge of the infield on the left field side to the same spot on the right field side. As an added bonus, all the seats are equipped with cup holders.

Seating is divided into two sections. The Premier Box Seating section is closest to field level, while the Reserved Box Seating section makes up the rest of the bowl. Despite there being two "sections," the seating is really just one section, with the Premier Box seats making up the lower portion of the section. Dow Diamond's simple approach to seating means there's no getting overwhelmed with the number of available options. If you have a few extra bucks to spare and want a front-row seat, Premier Box Seating is the logical choice. If not, choose a Reserved Box seat, which cost $9 per ticket.

If you would rather enjoy the feel of soft grass beneath you, opt for a Lawn Seating ticket. Dow Diamond has grass berms throughout much of the outfield and along the outfield half of the first base line, giving you plenty of options. These areas are especially ideal if you have children in your group, as they're able to run and play with ease. If visiting the ballpark with kids, the berm down the first base line is best because of its close proximity to Lou E's Lookout, the park's kids' play area. A spot on the lawn costs $6 per person.

Should you plan to visit Dow Diamond as part of a large group, contact the team's ticket office to inquire about suites. The Northern Lights Pavilion is a large group picnic area down the third base line, while the Shoreline Box and Pier 47 are smaller group areas on the third and first base sides, respectively. Dow Diamond has nine standard suites along the suite level and a large group area, named Lasorda's Landing, on one end of the suite level. Lasorda's Landing is available for groups of between 40 and 80 guests and offers a cash bar, wait staff and a number of catering choices.
