Fan index: MiLB still a great bargain

Minor League Baseball logoAnyone with a family knows a night out isn’t cheap these days, but Minor League Baseball remains a great bargain for a family of four, costing on average $64.18 across the board.

The numbers are tallied annually by MiLB, and the $64.18 cost reflects parking, two adult tickets, two child tickets, four hot dogs, two sodas, two beers and a program or scorecard at one of the 159 ballparks in the 14 U.S. domestic leagues. The ticket prices are based on the most economical fixed seat in a stadium, although 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 platforms also save fans money and contribute to making the cost of attending a Minor League Baseball game one of the best budget-friendly options among all professional sports leagues.

“One of the biggest reasons Minor League Baseball attracted over 42 million fans last year, and over 41 million for 10 years in a row, is the affordability of an outing at our ballparks,” said Minor League Baseball President and CEO Pat O’Conner. “When you combine the entertaining promotions with the talent on the field in a safe, family-friendly environment for a reasonable price, you provide fans with a memorable experience.”
