Petco Park - The BeachBeginning today, USA TODAY takes a look at the best seats in baseball in a 10-day series that starts today in the newspaper and online at USAToday.com. In the last 15 years, many new stadiums have been built so USA TODAY Sports staff thought it was time to spotlight some of the unique seats in the new stadiums as well as the old ones. The featured seats vary in price from a low of $9 to the extravagant five figures.

The countdown will appear in-paper each day with additional coverage online to include a stadium map and unique 360-degree imagery from each profiled seat. The countdown to the best seat starts today with #10.

10. Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres - The Beach

The Beach is a sandy play area behind a see-through section behind the right-center-field fence. The beach is the centerpiece of a 2.7-acre park, the first public park in an outfield since Forbes Field in Pittsburgh closed in 1970. The park also features a statue of Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn. The view's not bad and you're close enough to strike up a conversation with the center fielder.

The countdown of the best seats in baseball will continue in-paper and online through August 29.
