  • U.S. Cellular Pavilion is one of the best sections in the Minors
  • For affordability, the General Admission section in LF corner is ideal
The U.S. Cellular Pavilion in right field offers a unique seating option for fans.

While the crown jewel of Hadlock Field is the Maine Monster in left field, it's the U.S. Cellular Pavilion seats in right field that are the most unique place to sit. There's no seating atop the Maine Monster, but the U.S. Cellular Pavilion mimics Fenway's Green Monster by offering seating. The pavilion is divided into three sections and tickets cost $9 for adults and $8 for children and seniors. It's an exclusive feel that you might expect to cost more, but it's certainly affordable.

If you want to be closer to home plate for the same amount of money it costs to sit in the U.S. Cellular Pavilion, the Box section is a logical choice. It wraps from first base all the way to beyond third base and is at field level, giving you plenty of seating options whether you enjoy being directly behind home plate, above either team's dugout or somewhere in between. Seats in this section are plastic box seats and tickets are $9 for adults and $8 for children and seniors.

For a slight savings, consider the Reserved area, which is comprised of 11 sections behind the Box section. There's a cross-aisle that separates the two sections, so a front-row seat in the Reserved section is ideal because you won't have people directly in front of you. Tickets here cost $8 for adults and $7 for children and seniors. Like the Box section, this section's seats are box style.

The lowest-priced ticket in the park belongs to the General Admission section, which spans almost the entire seating bowl above the Reserved section and includes a large grandstand in the left field corner. The bleachers in the General Admission are away from field level, but still offer a perfect view of the game. Tickets in any of the General Admission sections cost $7 for adults and $4 for children and seniors.

If you're on the fence about where to sit, you can't go wrong with the U.S. Cellular Pavilion. Most Minor League parks don't offer outfield seating, so a spot here gives you a seldom-enjoyed vantage point. You've got a bird's-eye view of the action and the ability to catch a home run ball -- what more could you ask for? If you're concerned about climbing all the way up to the seats, there's an elevator for your convenience.
