Huntington Park seating guide

Maybe you've got your sights on seeing a certain matchup. Or you've got friends coming into town and want to start your night off at Huntington Park.

It's easy to snag tickets to most Clippers games. The hard part is deciding where to sit. Base that decision on your level of interest in the game versus your level of interest in socializing. Check below for more help with that.

Standing room only ($6)

Watch the game from the three-level AEP Power Pavilion, right field's mini Green Monster, or from the drink ledges and picnic tables in between.

Pros: Take in the whole park, and scope out your seats for the next game. The Roosters on the third floor of the AEP Power Pavilion offers an excellent vantage point.

Cons: If you're a returning fan who's there to watch the game, this ticket probably isn't the best for you.

Lawn ($6)

Bring a blanket and stretch out on a sloped, grassy expanse in left field.

Pros: Who doesn't love sprawling in the grass watching baseball? Plus, groups can sit and chat without the inconvenience of sitting side-by-side. And you're welcome to explore any of the other open areas.

Cons: Hold onto your beer; the grassy hill doesn't offer much in the way of flat surfaces. And although tickets are limited, without defined seats, this space can get crowded.

Reserved bleacher seats ($6)

Several sections of assigned-seat bleachers are available in left field, next to the lawn.

Pros: You'll have a space with your name on it, but the low cost means you won't have to feel guilty if you're not in it for long.

Cons: Among the assigned seats, these are far from premium. Also, expect some serious sun in your eyes for part of the game.

Reserved seating ($10)

Get your own dedicated seat in the area flanking the box seats in left or right field. There's easy access to the food pavilions.

Pros: Upgrade your game-watching experience with a seatback, cup holders and a location that faces away from the sun.

Cons: If you're into the game, this might not be close enough for you; if you aren't, the higher price might not be worth it.

Box ($12 advance, $15 day-of)

Score a seat on either side of the diamond. This is where season ticket holders sit.

Pros: A slight bump in price will get you way closer to the action.

Cons: Don't spring for these seats if you plan on spending much time wandering during the game.

Club ($20)

This raised section of seats faces the ballpark head-on. It's ideal for taking in the game and the skyline view.

Pros: Settle into a cushy spot centered behind home plate. Club ticket holders can also access the upper-level Tansky Sawmill Toyota Club, which has restricted access that makes for shorter lines.

Cons: Cost. At more than three times that of a bleacher seat, it's up to you to decide if this is worth it.
