Baseball season is officially here in Michigan and across the US. You can expect to get pummeled with baseball from now until the fall. I mean, there are so many games, right? As a football fan, I’m jelly about all the games baseball fans get. But, I understand that baseball is such a different sport than football, and there’s no way a contact sport like football could pack in that many games.
So, if you’re heading to a Tigers game at Comerica Park in Detroit, note that there’s one seat you should not get. The crew at Bookies.com has put together a list of the worst seats at every baseball park across the US. “For the second year in a row, Bookies.com analyzed the seating arrangements of all 30 MLB venues and determined the worst seat in each ballpark using an algorithm that took into account various metrics ahead of the 2023 season,” they explain. When doing the ranking, the best possible score is 60 out of 60, meaning a great seat. The lowest possible score is 0 out of 60, meaning a terrible seat.
As for ties, they were “broken by price, with the lower-priced seat given credit on our scale. As you can see in our table, the Red Sox seat is the worst in baseball, followed by the Cubs seat in Section 428, and so on.”
So, what’s the absolute worst seat at Comerica Park in Detroit? Section 345, row 20 and seat 9. It got a score of 24. It’s only a $16 seat, though, so not much harm is done. The lowest score went to a seat at Fenway Park, with a score of just 17. That seat is actually more expensive than the Tigers one at $19.
