These Charts Show How Baseball Games Might Actually Be Getting Cheaper

Apr 07, 2015

With the Major League Baseball season underway, the slight rise in average ticket price to $28.94 this year is no surprise.

But while average ticket prices grew by about a dollar, the average cost of beer slid down to $5.98, according to an annual roundup by Team Marketing Report published Monday.
