What is the most expensive ballpark to see a game at?
May 13, 2010
you ever taken your family to a baseball game? If you have, you know that it can
cost as much as taking your family on a mini-vacation. With food, drinks,
souvenirs, and that’s not even to mention the tickets! All of this adds up to a
lot of cash for a family of four just to enjoy an afternoon at the ballpark.
But, what ballpark will cost your family the most?
According to the Fan Cost Index of Major League
Baseball, the title of the world’s most expensive ballpark for fans to attend is
Fenway Park. The Fan Cost Index tallies its totals by comparing certain prices
of different ballparks. How it works is that it takes a family package which
includes: two adult tickets and two children’s tickets; four small soft drinks;
two small hot drinks; two programs; and parking fees, and compares these prices
for all of the ballparks that host Major League Baseball games.
This total cost for Fenway Park was $334.78, which
is a lot of dough to spend in three hours! Following closely behind Fenway Park
is Wrigley Field, which has a total cost on the Fan Cost Index of $329.74. And
coming in third on the Index is Yankee Stadium, which will cost a family of four
a total of $316.32.
And while the Boston Red Sox may have the most
expensive stadium for fans to enjoy, there’s also no doubt that they have some
of the most loyal fans in the baseball world. And that each and every one of
them thinks that every dime spent at Fenway Park, is a dime well spent!
