Minor League BaseballA survey of the 160 Minor League Baseball clubs in the domestic-based leagues charging admission this season has proven once again that going to a game will be one of the more affordable forms of entertainment, especially for families. The average cost for a family of four (two adult tickets, two child tickets, four hot dogs, two sodas, two beers, a program or scorecard and parking) to attend a Minor League Baseball game this season is $59.77.

According to MiLB, Minor League Baseball is an even bigger bargain from a practical standpoint, since many clubs do not charge for parking; have more economical berm seating available; special ticket prices in place for senior citizens and military personnel; and concessions specials on certain nights of the week.

“Minor League Baseball continues to lead the way in providing affordable family entertainment across America,” Minor League Baseball President Pat O’Conner said. “In this day and age to entertain an entire family at these prices, in the quality stadiums in which we play, is a true value. Our ability to maintain an affordable price point in large part drives our success. I am proud of our Minor League Baseball teams and their commitment to affordable pricing for our great fans.”

The ticket prices are based on the most economical fixed seat in the ballpark. The price for an adult ticket is $8 or less at nearly 80% of Minor League Baseball’s stadiums.

The average cost of a night at a Minor League ballpark ranges from $68.00 for a Triple-A game to $53.03 for a Short Season A/Rookie contest. The Double-A ($60.09) and Class A ($59.66) classifications are within 35 cents of the industry average, as they were in 2010.
