Some stats on attending a Minor League Baseball game: it will cost $63.55 for a family of four to enjoy a trip to the ballpark this season.
The price includes parking, two adult tickets, two child tickets, four hot dogs, two sodas, two beers and a program or scorecard.
The average cost for a fan attending a game with their spouse, significant other, neighbor or friend at one of the 160 ballparks in the 14 domestic-based leagues that charge admission ranges from $33-$37, depending on their choice of beverages.
The ticket prices are based on the most economical fixed seat in a stadium on a typical night at the ballpark. A majority of the clubs have discounted, free or special ticket prices for children under a certain age, senior citizens and/or military personnel. Berm seating, concessions specials and other deals available through clubs’ social media outlets also save fans money and contribute to making the cost of attending a MiLB game a great budget-friendly options.
