The tall enclosed pressbox behind home plate, with a small section of seating in front of it.


The grandstand features a long section of covered seating, built in 1939, running down the third base line.


Seating in the third base grandstand is on the park's original wooden benches.


Muzzy Field has also seen action as a football stadium, and a rooftop football pressbox sits at the end of the third base grandstand.


The first base grandstand, added to the field in 2013, is shorter and has fewer rows, as the visitor's dugout sits higher up than the home dugout on the third base side.


Seating in the newer first base grandstand features aluminum bleacher seats, but maintains the wooden roof look from the original grandstand.


The roof of the first base grandstand extends out past the stands to cover part of the concourse.


A large aluminum bleacher section runs down the third base foul line into the outfield, providing football seating as well as overflow baseball stands.


Picnic table seating runs down the first base line.
