Minor League Baseball Sees Slight Uptick In Cost For Families To Attend Games
Minor League Baseball on Thursday said the average cost for a family of four to attend a game in the affiliated minors this year is $63.55, up $1.03 from a year ago. As is typical, Triple-A carries the most expensive tickets and concessions with short season Single-A and Rookie levels the cheapest. The 1.6% increase in the cost to attend compared to ’13 is less than the current U.S. trailing rate of inflation of 2%. “There are many reasons why Minor League Baseball clubs have attracted more than 41 million fans for nine years in a row, and the affordability of experiencing a game has certainly played an integral role in bringing fans to our ballparks,” said MiLB President Pat O'Connor.
