A family of four will spend an average of $57.70 this season to see a Minor League Baseball game, complete with concessions and a program.A survey of the 160 Minor League Baseball clubs in the U.S. and Canada that charge admission for their games found the average cost for a family of four to take in a Minor League Baseball game this season is $57.70.
“Minor League Baseball continues to lead the way in providing affordable family entertainment to communities throughout the country,” stated Minor League Baseball President Pat O’Conner. “At a time when many of our fans face the economic and social challenges of the day, we are pleased to offer a family-fun, community-oriented entertainment outlet that is so reasonably priced."
The survey is based on the price of two adult tickets; two child tickets; four hot dogs; two sodas; two beers; a program and parking. The price for an adult ticket is $8 or less at more than 80 percent of Minor League Baseball’s ballparks.
The average cost of a night at a Minor League ballpark ranges from $67.77 for a Triple-A game to $50.26 for a Short-Season-A/Rookie contest. The Double-A ($57.47) and Class A ($57.44) classifications are within $.30 of the industry average.
