What’s the Total Amount You Would Spend at a Game?

If you add up the cost of a ticket, a hot dog, and a beer, the total amount adds up very quickly. We calculated the total cost for three of the most affordable games compared to three of the most expensive stadiums to attend.

Kansas City Royals (Kauffman Stadium)

  • Ticket: $42
  • Beer: $5
  • Hot Dog: $4
  • Total = $51

The Kansas City Royals slide in as the team offering the cheapest gameday experience in 2024, allowing you to buy a ticket, beer, and hot dog for only $51. With prices well below the league average, Kauffman Stadium is well worth a visit.

Cleveland Guardians (Progressive Field)

  • Ticket: $50
  • Beer: $5
  • Hot Dog: $4.50
  • Total = $59.50

As the first Ohio team to make this list, the Cleveland Guardians provide a fun-filled day at an affordable price. This team has been hot in recent seasons with 8 winning seasons in the last 10 years and 5 playoff berths in the last 8 years.

Cincinnati Reds (Great American Ball Park)

  • Ticket: $52
  • Beer: $7.49
  • Hot Dog: $6.29
  • Total = $65.78

Not to be outdone by their cousins in east Ohio, the Cincinnati Reds manage to offer a relatively inexpensive trip to a ballgame despite their high concession prices. The on-field action with their dynamic roster should make skipping the concession stand easy.

San Francisco Giants (Oracle Park)

  • Ticket: $89
  • Beer: $9
  • Hot Dog: $7.50
  • Total = $105.50

Oracle Park is a gorgeous venue overlooking the San Francisco Bay, but their gameday prices are far less appealing. High concession prices are overshadowed by tickets nearing $90, making them a one-time stop on your ballpark tour.

New York Yankees (Yankee Stadium)

  • Ticket: $98
  • Beer: $6
  • Hot Dog: $3
  • Total = $107

Despite offering the third-cheapest baseball experience in 2023, watching a game and concessions at Yankee Stadium now costs over $100. Their streak of 31 winning seasons is little consolation for the high gameday cost, making them a team best enjoyed from your couch.

Los Angeles Dodgers (Dodger Stadium)

  • Ticket: $115
  • Beer: $7
  • Hot Dog: $6.50
  • Total = $128.50

After offering several record-breaking contracts in the off-season, the Los Angeles Dodgers raised their prices significantly to see these superstars live. With a total nearing $130, you should book tickets to watch the Dodgers play on the road.

What’s the Average Attendance for All Teams?

In-person attendance has grown steadily in the years after Covid-19, and the 2023 season hosted nearly 30,000 fans per game. We expect 2024 to be even more enjoyable, making ballparks crowded once again. Below, we've listed the average attendance for all baseball teams for the past three years.

  • 2023 Average Attendance: 29,293
  • 2022 Average Attendance: 26,808
