Re: Scout Seats
Scout seats are very nice; both scout boxes and scout seats have access to the more private concessions area under the grandstand.
I make it up for about 6 games a year, I usually get 2 or 3 of these games in Scout seats.
The Club seats, though, are a different matter. Used to be a decent enough deal when it was the "4192 Club", tix went for $50 and it is a nice indoor area and great views. Sat up there a few times, most notably a few years back when it was like 17 degrees for the early April games. Certainly worth it then, sat inside and watched from behind the glass like it was a dog track or something, but I didn't get frostbite!
Now, given that the tix for Club seats are $85 and include food I don't want and no booze, plus not nearly the view as other cheaper seats, I pass. I get my Cincy fix on stuff like Skyline at GABP; as Skyline not included with Club food, I still end up spending about 25 or 30 on concessions (beer not cheap).
My personal favorite is getting barrier free seating in the infield box seats. Basically a poor mans lux box. You have plenty of leg room (I am 6'5"), power outlet for wife to recharge phone or kids games, nobody getting up on your aisle, you are at top of concourse so you can get to concessions or bathroom ahead of lines at inning breaks.
Its just fun thinking about going to games again. Spring like down here anyway, it is 65 degrees today, gonna take kids to park when youngest wakes from nap!
