Where can I park near TD Ameritrade Park?
There are parking lots to the east and south of the park, and general parking is $10. If you choose one of the covered garages, the parking fee is $15.
Where should I sit?
As with most baseball stadiums, the best seats in the house will be behind home plate and up and down the 1st and 3rd base lines. Sections 104-120 will all give you a great view of the infield. Section 112 is directly behind home plate. Truth be told, the stadium is very small (24,000 capacity) compared to major league stadiums you may be used to, so you won’t be disappointed no matter where you sit.
