Seats to Avoid
Most seats at Wrigley Field offer good views, but there are still a few areas you’ll want to avoid. Many fans prefer to stay away from the lower rows of the Field Box, as these are plagued by heavy foot traffic. Also, in the Upper Deck, the view from seats above Row 16 are significantly obstructed due to an overhang. In the terrace level, it is important to keep in mind that aisle seats row 7 or higher may have obstructed views of the field.
Dugouts and Bullpens
The Chicago Cubs Dugout at Wrigley Field is located in front of sections 12-15, and the visitors dugout is located in front of sections 27-32. Unlike the vast majority of baseball parks, the Wrigley Field bullpens are in the field of play, down the first and third baselines. The Cubs bullpen is down the third baseline, and the visitors bullpen is down the first base line.
Seats in Shade
If you are looking for seats in the shade at Wrigley Field, the 200, 400, 500 level sections offer cover from the section above and an awning, respectively. When looking for tickets in the 200 level in the shade, be sure your tickets are not in the first 10 rows to ensure you will be under cover.

Wrigley Field visitors often complain that the ballpark’s seat number setup leaves them confused. Seats are not always marked in exact numerical order, which is why a seat marked 106 can be found alongside a seat marked 6. If you glance at the seat numbers, you’ll notice that the spot farthest to the left is marked 101. The next several seats continue in numerical order (102, 103, 104 and so on). At the center of the row, this pattern changes. In a row with 12 seats, number 106 is followed by 6. From there, the seats continue in reverse numerical order (5, 4, 3, etc.). The seat farthest to the right is labeled 1.
There truly is no one best seating section at Wrigley Field, as individual preferences can make this a very subjective distinction. In general, fans tend to best enjoy seats down the first and third base lines. Fortunately, the small size of the ballpark ensures that you’ll be able to obtain a decent view almost anywhere you sit, be that in the bleachers, the Club Box or the Upper Deck Box.
A 2012 update to Wrigley Park’s seating arrangement and pricing setup included a switch that exchanged the Bleacher Box for the Budweiser Patio. The atmosphere of this section is similar to that found in the bleachers, except for the addition of the unlimited food and drink that is available with the purchase of exclusive Budweiser Patio tickets.
For a reduced price, you can elect to sit in the bleachers at a Cubs game, which are located on the opposite side of the field from home plate. One of the more popular seating areas at Wrigley Field, the bleachers are marked as general admission, which means that there are no reserved seats. Depending on the weather, the opponent and the pricing on the day of the game, fans will often line up several hours before the game in order to have their pick of the bleacher seating; thus, you are advised to arrive early if you opt to go the general admission route.
