Burlington, IA (April 30, 2013) - Minor League Baseball recently announced that the average cost for a family of four to enjoy a Minor League Baseball game this season is $62.52 ($62.47 across the Class A level). The average cost to go to a Burlington Bees game is just $42.
"We work year-round to provide our fans with experiences that are memorable, family-oriented and budget friendly," Bees General Manager Chuck Brockett said.
The average costs were calculated using the prices of two adult tickets, two child tickets, four hot dogs, two sodas, two beers, a program or scorecard and parking at the 160 clubs in the domestic-based leagues that charge admission.
"When stacked up against other professional sports leagues and family entertainment options, Minor League Baseball proves year after year that it provides the most bang for your buck," Minor League Baseball President Pat O'Conner said. "Each ballpark and club brings something unique to its fan base, but one thing they all share is the privilege of serving the communities which embrace them."
The Bees return home May 1 to start a nine game home stand. For more information or to purchase tickets, please log onto www.gobees.com or call the office at (319) 754-5705.
