Above is our view from just behind third base. We had great seats. That's our team's dugout over there and with my binoculars I could see individual faces clearly. Plus the location was great for beer, food, bathrooms, even smoking. Everything was close by and I never even had to wait in line at the bathroom. And that was with a packed stadium.
I loved how everywhere you looked in the stands it was a sea of red, white and blue. It was very pretty, like it had been done on purpose. The guys to our right and in front of us were a group and we thought they were going to be an annoying bunch of drunk frat boy types, but they were just happy fans like us. One of them insisted on high fiving us after every good play and even hugged us after we won. Yes, we won! It was one giant crazy celebration.
In the picture above, the game is over and the two teams are doing the handshake thing. That sign the girl is holding says, "Yankee Go Home!" The guy just behind her caught a foul ball earlier. That was the only thing about our great seats - you really had to pay attention to foul balls possibly raining down on your head. Oh and once when I was smoking I noticed these three guys walk by. They stood out and didn't look like your typical Texas Rangers fans. They were very hip in all black and had a bit of swagger. Just after they passed, I recognized one of them and called out, "Bon Jovi!" and the one that looked like Bon Jovi turned and gave me a nice wave. I hear he's a huge Yankees fan. Well his team lost, but he got to see me.
