What are the best seats for getting a ball at Dodger Stadium?
Your odds of getting a ball at Dodger Stadium will increase if you sit in one of the sections below.
Many baseball fans have dreamt of coming home with a baseball after a trip to the ballpark.
Getting a ball at Dodger Stadium Field Level
The high-volume areas for foul balls can be found on the Field Level. The even-numbered Field Level sections between 28–42 and rows D-Q (down the first base line), and odd-numbered Field Level sections (down the third base line) between 29-43 and rows D-Q are a prime foul territory.
These seats are beyond the netting and not too close to the field (where foul balls are rare), yet not so far back that you are under the Loge overhang.
If you sit in the very front row of the Field Level between sections 26-37, you might be able to persuade a ball boy (or ball girl) to give you a foul ball grounder.
Finally, the lower rows of Field Level sections 52 and 53 are worth checking out as well.
The short porches at the left and right field corners give you the opportunity to catch a home run ball.
These sections are right next to the bullpens.
Send some compliments to the staff manning one of the bullpens, and who knows? One of them might toss a souvenir ball your way.
Left Field Pavilion
If it’s a home run ball you’re looking for, we recommend sitting in the lower rows (A-H) of the Left Field Pavilion, sections 301-315.
Sitting any further back than row H will decrease your chances of catching a home run.
The reason we prefer the bleachers in Left Field vs. Right, Field is because the Right Field Pavilion is all-you-can-eat.
You are more likely to be distracted by the tempting food choices in the all-you-can-eat section, and it’s much more difficult to catch a home run ball if you’re holding a soda, nachos, and a delicious Dodger Dog.
Getting a ball at Dodger Stadium in the Dodger Dugout Club Seats
Located in the first couple of rows behind the dugouts, if you sit in one of these Dodger Dugout club sections, you will have access to some of the best amenities in the stadium.
These seats are some of the most difficult tickets to find, but if you sit in the first two rows, you might be lucky enough to catch a ball tossed by one of the players as they head back to the dugout.
The second level loge sections 101-136 receive a significant amount of foul balls at Dodger Stadium.
If anything, shoot for sections 116-136 as they are closer to the first and third base bags and offer a better opportunity of getting a ball at Dodger Stadium.
