In Game

Petco Park is a gorgeous ballpark and a fantastic place to take in a ball game.  The way the stadium is constructed any seat on the first level feels like you are almost on the field, which is also a great reason to bring your glove with you too because fouls balls will be coming into the seats like rockets.  When you sit in the lower level of the first deck (box seats) in addition to ushers there will be servers to run and get your food and drinks for you during the game, so you won’t have to worry about missing a pitch.

One of the more unique features of Petco Park is the outfield seating areas.  In left field you’ll notice a large brownstone building near the foul pole, this is the Western Metal Supply building which was designated as a landmark in the late 1970’s, so the architects incorporated the building into the stadium’s design.  The building features luxury outfield boxes as well as a viewing deck on the third level, accompanied by bleachers on the roof of the building.  It’s only 334 ft down the line at Petco so if you are sitting in the building be on the lookout for a few homers headed your way even if you’re on the third deck.

In the right field power alley, fans can sit at their very own beach.  Yes, that’s right the team installed a makeshift beach behind the chain link fence in the outfield with bleacher seating and a park behind it as well.

The stadium also offers a variety of food options outside of the typical ballpark hotdogs, cotton candy, snow cones and beers with items such as The Baked Bear, Hodads, and Seaside market.  Additionally, Petco Park has a unique beer selection, and many of the local brews from San Diego like Sierra Nevada Ales and items from Stone Brewing are available at the game.
