ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Minor League Baseball™ announced today that attending one of its games this season is, yet again, one of the most economical forms of family entertainment available. The average cost for a family of four to enjoy a MiLB™ game this season is just $63.55. The price includes parking, two adult tickets, two child tickets, four hot dogs, two sodas, two beers and a program or scorecard.

The average cost for a fan attending a game with their spouse, significant other, neighbor or friend at one of the 160 ballparks in the 14 domestic-based leagues that charge admission ranges from $33-$37, depending on their choice of beverages.

The ticket prices are based on the most economical fixed seat in a stadium on a typical night at the ballpark. A majority of the clubs have discounted, free or special ticket prices for children under a certain age, senior citizens and/or military personnel. Berm seating, concessions specials and other deals available through clubs' social media outlets also save fans money and contribute to making the cost of attending a MiLB game one of the best budget-friendly options among all of the professional sports leagues.

"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 into our ballparks," said Minor League Baseball President and CEO Pat O'Conner. "Combining the economic-friendly cost of attending one of our clubs' games with the promotions and the all-around stadium experience provides our fans with a great night out."
