Phillies Games 4th-Most Expensive in Baseball

You pay for what you get, right? Not necessarily. According to the New York Post, the Phillies, the Cubbies, and the Red Sox, none of whom finished the 2012 season with a winning record account for three of the four most expensive ballpark experiences. For four tickets, four hot dogs, two beers, two sodas, four hot dogs, parking, two hats, and two programs (who buys programs?), a nuclear family day at Citizens Bank Park will cost you $257.16. It’s far too much, but not quite the $337 the Yankees and Red Sox are wringing out of their fans. [New York Post]

    No one gets programs and hats everytime they go.

    Do they also account for the fact that you can take drinks and food into CBP. I have Sunday tickets and usually don’t buy any food. I might buy ice cream or a hot dog sometimes, but usually no need.

    It’s the New York Post. They are trying to make NYC not look so bad by ragging on other cities.

    Well they have raised ticket prices every year since they moved into the new ballpark. With as little media coverage as that gets don’t expect them to stop the trend any time soon.
