Chicago Cubs: Just look out for those obstructed view seats in the lower bowl

There’s a lot of ambiance that comes with watching a game from a ballpark that’s been around for more than a century. But there are a handful of shortcomings, as well. When it comes to Wrigley Field, it’s the obstructed seating that can be found all over the lower deck – caused by the steel support beams that hold up the upper deck.

But you also have quick access to the concourse – as well as additional vendors at the back of the section, giving you multiple options when it comes to grabbing food or beverages between innings.

I still love the old-school boards that are mounted under the upper deck, showing you the score in with a vibe of yesteryear, long before LED videoboards were plastered as far as the eye can see. It’s a small detail, but one that I still love even post-renovation.

Personally, these seats are nice in the summer (or early in the year when you sometimes get some snow or mist coming in off the lake). Having at least some protection from the elements helps, because we all know what it’s like to not be under cover when a weather system blows through and you’re stuck, looking like a wet dog once play resumes.
