Have you tried the $5 gameday seats yet? I hadn't until Memorial Day, and now I love them. They're cheap and easy, but I found a couple more redeeming qualities in case you're still on the fence.
First, if you arrive early enough you can get front row seats, which are harder to get in the other sections. With only a clear glass barrier between you and the rest of the ballpark, they offer a unique sensation. But views are still great even if you're not in the first row. I love that you can see the river and the field at the same time.
Speaking of views, at that height and angle I may not have been able to see the players' faces, but Dmitri's controversial home run was plain as day. It wasn't until I saw video from a much lower angle that I even understood what the controversy was.
Another advantage: shade. Memorial Day was pretty toasty, but we only sat in the sun for about 15 minutes before the shade hit us.
And finally, the breeze up there was divine. In April, the "breeze" in the upper decks was more like an arctic wind, but hopefully on hot, sunny days, the breeze will help keep the temperatures baseball-perfect throughout the summer.
Anyway, the $5 gameday seats seem perfect to me; I'd recommend them to anyone who asks. But I'm curious if anyone's had a bad experience with them.
