          MLB "is still the best bargain in professional sports,
     though most teams raised 1998 ticket prices," according to
     USA TODAY's Chuck Johnson.  Of the 28 teams that played in
     '97, 20 increased prices for the '98 season.  The increases
     range from $1 to $10.  In its feature, USA TODAY charts the
     best bargains for each MLB team and lists each team's
     average ticket price for '97 and '98.  The piece also
     compares the average ticket prices for the big four and
     NASCAR.  NASCAR tickets average $80 (USA TODAY, 1/22).
