The Victoria HarbourCats (summer collegiate; West Coast League) have made an upgrade to Royal Athletic Park by installing field level box seating.
A total of 44 seats were installed in the area behind home plate between the two dugouts. The new seating will be in front of the first row of the grandstand, and will be available for both single game purchases and season ticket packages. On the third base side, 12-15 seats will be available for corporate outings.
The original baseball backstop at RAP, which included some chain-link and metal bars that obstructed views, has been removed, and seven feet of foul territory eliminated where the new seating section now exists. The entire backstop screening is now one hundred percent pro-style meshing, creating greatly improved sightlines over the previous configuration.
When sitting in the field level box seats you will be just 37 feet from home plate, which is closer to the action than the players in the dugouts. In addition to the proximity to the action, a ticket here comes with food and beverage service to your seat, ensuring you don’t have to spend a moment of your evening waiting for refreshments.
Field level box seats sell for $550 for a season ticket or $25 for a single game.
The addition of the new field level seats raises Royal Athletic Park’s baseball configuration to 2,500 seats, which is expandable to 5,500.
