Always the away dugout IMO. Whenever I go to a yanks game (even though im a yanks fan) I always try and get tickets on the third base side and wear the opposing teams hat. Works for autos and memorabilia every time

I love the outfield because you can actually see the pitch go into the glove and see the whole play develop.

I prefer watching a game from behind the plate even though it's easier to get autos other places.

I never go for autos, just to enjoy the game.

Nothing beats behind home plate. Watching the best pitchers in the world from that vantage point is just spectacular.

I have had much success getting autos by the thirdbase side from opposing sides and it has been a blast! And it is a GREAT view!

Depends on the park. Wrigley Field I sit in the bleachers in the outfield. The Cell, near the dugouts.

I love the bleachers. You can see the whole field really well.

Totally depends on the park IMO. At Comerica the bleachers as well as the 1st base side is great for viewing. At Nats park along the 1st base side but not too far into right field is nice. Get too far under the overhang and you can't see the scoreboard. At Camden I hate sitting too far back in the lower level because you can't see balls that are hit high because the overhang blocks it. At Tropicana you buy the cheapest seats available and move to whatever seat you like!

On a side note; I would never wear an opposing teams hat at Comerica or even at Nats park unless the Tigers come to town. How can you call yourself a Yankees fan?

Wow. This guy. Anything for an auto, huh? Lmbo

Memorabilia is kind of cool though. I can't hate the game; More power to ya, bud. Personally, I stay away from first and third base lines because I'm too old to be worried about dodging rocket line-drives if I happen to be looking down and checking my phone!

If I'm going to a MILB game by myself, I like to sit behind home plate. I usually talk to the pitchers charting or the scouts there. Most actually like to talk to people, as their task can be rather dull.

If I'm with the lady friend, she likes to be front row near around either side of the dugout.

I actually did this on Friday night at the hangar in lancaster. My wife and I met mark Appel as he was charting. Really cool guy...

Listen, I try my best to watch all 162 yanks games a year (plus playoffs) im always rooting for them. But since I am a kid/teen, Ill always want to try and get some autos, memorabilia, and meet some players! Some players on away teams even know im not a fan of their team! haha

I've been doing press box work around my area for high school and college games for several years now and I really enjoy sitting behind the plate and watching the movement on the pitches, etc.

My favorite would be behind home plate. It's the closest, and you can see the whole field.

Second choice would be the first base side. Gives you a shot at some foul balls (no glove ofcourse ), and a solid view of how the pitch is coming in. Only downsides would be you can't see the right field corner.

I spoke with him a bit up in Tri Cities as well. Smart guy, engineering grad.

Incidentally, if you go to Lancaster games, go talk to Tony Kemp. He was a fan favorite in Nashville, and is a really fun player.

I've got a buddy that absolutely loves to sit in these sections for that very reason. He wants the line drives coming at us.
