Yankee Stadium Seat Question

Hi Everyone,

I was just wondering if any of you could tell me the best seats to get for under $60 at Yankee Stadium. I was looking at:


to determine the best views. I know being low and as close to home plate is best but is there a big difference between say...Section 212 and 315 or 316? I was also wondering which section(s) have the covered seating? I've read the Loge is covered but can't seem to find which section that is. Your help would be greatly appreciated!

Here is the Yankee Stadium seating chart: …mlb.com/nyy/ballpark/seating_pricing.jsp

The bleachers in the outfield are totally uncovered. The box seats in the lower level are uncovered. The seats more toward the rear of the first and second decks will be covered by the deck above. I do not worry about whether the seat is covered - I just take a hat and sunscreen.

The right field side will be in the shade for most games, especially in Field and Main, because of the way the sun enters the stadium. The overhang starts at about row 12, but the left field side is almost always in the sun, regardless of row.

I always sit in covered seats. It's HOT in the summer and I burn too easily.

Thanks BrooklynMel for the link. Parfaits that info is extremely helpful and my gf is quite pale and burns quite easily as well so if we can be in the shade even for half of the game that would be nice for her.

id sit somewhere behind home plate--even in 300 section--- your still close to the homeplate action and get a great persective of te whole field--might even get a foul ball--and youll be out of the sun if you stay towards the 1st base line

Will be checking out the levels, walking up lots of stairs and down lots of ramps and doing twice around the warning track on Aug 12th - Will report back later.
