If you’re a baseball fan, there are few things more exciting than the thrilling race to the pennant during October baseball. There is, however, something that could make this year’s postseason even more exciting: staying ringside in Cleveland, LA, or Chicago in unique, family-friendly accommodations.

From private rooftops that overlook the ballpark to a decked out luxury trailer fit for a Hollywood movie, Airbnb has curated the best listings for fans to hear the roar of the crowd, crack of the bat, see the lights and sights, and maybe even catch a home-run ball. Bonus: these are all great for families, too. And even if you don’t make it to the playoffs, tuck this list away for next year’s baseball season.

Catch a game (and maybe a home run ball) in Wrigleyville’s closest residential building to the ballpark — families can rent the entire 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit for luxury space pitching distance to the park.

It’s glamping-meets-baseball in this custom-renovated, fully-heated and air-conditioned mobile home that comes with a view of  downtown Los Angeles and is walking distance to Dodger Stadium. It’s small, but perfect for a parent-kid baseball bonding weekend.

A classic Craftsman-style home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and delivers all the charm a southern-Californian baseball fan can ask for. It’s just steps away from Dodger Stadium and even has a backyard to play catch in before the game.
