    Sun Block - The stadiums concourse design will play games with the setting sun shining through gaps in the decking and might hamper the fielders' vision.
    Outfield Bleachers - The cheapest place to watch a game - seats tickets start at $8.
    FriarVision - 30x53 foot state-of-the-art high resolution LED display will provide awesome clean, clear video of the action. Cox Communications and Sony has placed about 220 HDTV sets throughout the stadium to showcase this new technology.

These tower lofts can some impressive skyline views (the first base tower loft views are best).

    Rooftop Bleacher Seats - 180 reserved seats (priced at $60 each which includes a pre-game buffet) and standing room along the front rail.
    Padres Hall of Fame Bar & Grill - Fourth floor restaurant (only open on game days) with terrace dining and views of the field.
