If only the cost for a family of four to see a game was a standard benchmark of baseball franchises.

Are you even capable of comprehending what I'm saying? The metric you provided is an AVERAGE cost, which means they literally take every single seat in the stadium, and average out the price. I've never said you CAN'T spend that.

I said if you don't feel like spending that, then don't spend it, and buy a fucking family pack. (which has admittedly gone up in price since last I was at the Rangers' ballpark, but it now also includes mandatory kids' zone tickets, which, for the Rangers at least, it never used to.)


No, I get what you're saying. And, clearly, the metric they provide isn't quite right, as it includes buying 2 beers, 2 caps, etc.

But great. Not every team offers that. The Yankees don't. And the Mets do, but who knows how much it costs as their system is down now.

Fact remains that baseball games aren't cheap. Sporting events as a whole aren't cheap. Why? To pay those salaries. Are they necessary?

I genuinely hope to not see you complain about CEO salaries.
