Jays are in KC, so I"m heading to the game tonight. Since both the Jays and Royals suck now I knew tickets would be on the cheap, but it's hit some serious lows. I looked on Stubhub. They had upper deck seats for $6. I ended up picking up two 3rd level seats (Private level with @ 10 rows) at 3rd base and a Parking pass for $36 total including the fees. They had seats in the 1st ten rows up from 1st base going for @ $30-40 a ticket.

I've picked up seats in Dallas for @ this at times as well when I"ve seen the Jays play there. Is there really any point in buying seats retail for these games anymore?

The Yankees and Rays are having a day game in 10 minutes and on StubHub right now bleacher seats are as low as $7.50.  Upper deck is $14.  Field level seats are still going for $120 - $150 or so, and clearly the scalpers are just going to eat that.  Some just refuse to ever drop prices.

Last time I went to a Giants game it was 75.00 a ticket and 25.00 to park. Seats were good. About 12 rows behind the visitors dugout.

the orioles prices vary quite a bit. you can get the bleacher seats for 11 i believe. lower box are 55 i think? they actually had a deal this year where two children 9 or younger could get in for free with a full priced adult in the upper deck. i think that is a great deal, because sporting events price many families out of attending.

So at the game last night the wife went to a the concession stand. A can of Blue Moon...$11. Brat and some Fries was @ $14...Pretty much the only stuff under $10 for food was popcorn and peanuts. I'd already eaten so I didn't get anything...but I can't imagine showing up with a couple of kids. You'll drop at least 50-100 on food and drinks.

We have an Atlantic League team right near home with the Long Island Ducks. They play in a beautiful modern ballpark. The seats are dirt cheap with the very best ones going for like fifteen bucks. However, the concession prices are very Major League.

New York Met tickets can be had for as little as $6 bucks on Stubhub for nosebleeds. You can get an excellent seat for about forty to fifty bucks. However, the concessions and parking will kill you. If you have even the smallest drinking problem you'll drop over fifty bucks on beer and a dog. All this for the privledge of seeing who the next Met will be who cripples themself and will be on the DL for the next two years.

I took the family and the in laws (6) to an astros game a few years ago and I spent $500 for tickets, parking and food.

Seats were ok; 3rd base side about half way up on the lower level.

When I lived in California my friends and family usually went to cal state Fullerton games if we wanted to see baseball. Good competitive games for next to nothing in a small stadium.

I take my son to Rockland Boulders games for a cheap, kid- and dog-friendly experience. The whole thing can cost $50 for 3 people including drinks and is so much more chill. I can get seats right behind first base and when the sun is too hot I can just walk around carrying my son and stand anywhere or take an empty seat in the shade and no one says shit. There are water dishes down for dogs on select days and security doesn’t rape you on the way in and confiscate stuff for the baby. This is probably where we’ll see 80% of our games until my son is at least 8.

This is one of those questions that is "it all depends". You can get to Sox games here for $7 on the weekends in the upper tank with reduced parking, or you can boatloads of money to sit behind the dugout. Parking is $20 during the week, reduce on Sundays to $10. Stubhub sometimes offers deals, sometimes not. Went to a Mariners game a couple of weeks ago and got awesome seats in the upper deck right behind home plate for $42 each. Concessions, generally, are out of this world. Water and Soda for $6-$8. The Sox do a dollar hot dog night once a week. We tend not to eat too much at a game anyway.

I went to a Long Island Ducks game, about 2 years ago. Enjoyed it and I got autographs from Bud Harrelson and Gary Gaetti. My only knock was that Bethpage Ballpark was a little too kid-friendly, with all the annoying quackers and bouncy castles. Skill-wise, the play was about on par with any Triple A game I've seen.
Whenever I go to Long Island, for work, I always look to see if I can catch a Ducks game. Last time I was there, no Ducks, so I had the bright idea of driving to a Mets game. BAD idea on so many levels. About 2 hours to get there, which I expected...but getting OUT of the stadium parking lot was the biggest shit-show I've ever seen. Game ended around 9:30, but I didn't get back on the LIE until well after midnight. So 2.5 hours of gridlock, waiting to get out of a parking lot.
Ticket price was fine, though. They had some Internets promo where upper outfield seats were half-off. Think it worked out to be about 16 bucks, all in.

Excepting StubHub late season fire sale prices for a bad team, you can see the Twins for a fairly low price if you don't mind sitting far away.


There are some midweek games in April and September with tickets at $9 for upper left field seats. Those tickets run more like $12 to $14 depending on the game for more attractive dates and opponents. They are not isolated or cordoned off. You can roam the park freely and there are several party decks and bars that are open to all fans. There are seat improvement opportunities, but you have to play it smart. Going for the lower tier seats between the dugouts is not happening. They check stubs. However, you can get to the 300 level infield third tier seats fairly easily.


The team also has a deal for a family section where you pay $20 and the ticket includes a hotdog and a regular sized pop. You can't drink in those seats, but you can in the concourse and elsewhere. You can also just abandon the family section and sit someplace else, within reason, to drink and watch the game. I forget the section, but they're in the 300 level.

You could have attended all 81 Mets games in 1973 for $105
