I think my favorite part of GABP is sitting up in the higher seats behind home plate. Not only can you see the game perfectly, you can see the Northern Kentucky Skyline, the Great American Building, the barges and other boats coming down (or going up) the Ohio. It’s like everything is perfectly aligned. I especially like when dusk comes and the lights start to come on. The view is awesome.
