  • No such thing as "field level" seats at McCoy
  • Spend an inning in the tower down third base line
Regardless of where you sit for the game, visit the tower on the third base side for a unique view of the game.

The unique design of McCoy Stadium means you’ll encounter seating (or standing) choices that you won’t find at other parks. Because the park’s seating bowl is elevated well above the field, you won’t get the front-row feeling that you can experience at most other parks throughout the minors. That said, a front-row seat behind home plate does provide a great view of the game and the park as a whole – just don’t expect to be very close to the action.

The main seating bowl at McCoy Stadium is divided into three sections. The green box seats are closest to the field, with the red box seats immediately behind the green seats. At the top of the bowl is the general admission section. Other seating options include the set of bleachers in right-center field and the grass berm seating in left-center.

Regardless of where you choose to buy your ticket, don’t be afraid to watch the game from a number of different vantage points. Consider spending an inning or two in the tower on the third base side. This tower is arguably McCoy Stadium’s defining feature and provides multiple levels for fans to stand and enjoy the game. If you’ve got food with you, the tower even has a shelf told hold your food or drink. You’ve got to be quick to grab a spot along the railing, though, as this part of the park is popular among fans.

Another ideal location to explore is the field-level standing area down the first base line. Located beside the red BBQ tent, this spot is the only place in the park where you’ll legitimately be at field level. It provides a great view of the action and also has bar tables if you’re eating or drinking. As an added perk, it’s adjacent to the visitors’ bullpen and allows you to stand directly behind the bullpen catcher for an idea of what it’s like to face Triple-A pitching.
