Pay As You Enter: Yankees, Red Sox, Mariners Most Expensive MLB Games

By Barry Janoff

March 29, 2018: It is much too early to tell which team will lead MLB in wins, homers, batting or runs scored.

However, the New York Yankees enter the 2018 already leading in one category: Most expensive average cost to attend a game.

The average cost for two people to see a game in Yankee Stadium (pictured), also purchasing two hot dogs, two beers and paying for parking would total $95, the highest such average cost in MLB.

Not far behind, the same average cost package in the Seattle Mariners’ Safeco Field is $92.83 and in the Boston Red Sox Fenway Park $91, according to an MLB 2018 Opening Day survey from online personal finance and investment site GOBankingRates.com.

At the other end of the spectrum, the average cost for two tickets while also purchasing two hot dogs, two beers and paying for parking to see the Colorado Rockies in Coors Field is $50, the lowest average in MLB this season.

Also offering among the lowest average cost to see a MLB game are the Atlanta Braves in SunTrust Park (pictured below) at $51 and the Los Angeles Angels in Angel Stadium at $52.67.

Tickets to see the Braves are the least expensive on average in MLB, according to GOBankingRates.com.

GOBankingRates said it calculated the average cost to visit each stadium by taking the average of the three cheapest 2018 season ticket seat options and dividing that number by 81 home games.

It then multiplied that number by two attendees and added the price of parking, food and beverages.

On a separate but related note, people attending MLB games this season are projected to purchase a record 19 million hot dogs — everything from official MLB partner Nathan’s to Texas Rangers Dilly Dog and the Tampa Bay Rays Bacon Fried Doggy — according to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, Washington, DC.

The fact that the Yankees average cost per game leads MLB has not stopped people from wanting tickets.

The top-selling home opener this year both in demand and price — averaging $218 on StubHub — belongs to the Yankees, led by 2017 AL Rookie of the Year Aaron Judge and new teammate and reigning National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton, hosting the Tampa Bay Rays in Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees are also StubHub’s top-selling team in MLB overall going into the season, with demand in terms of ticket sales up 61% from last year, “likely a result of the team’s off-season moves,” offers StubHub.

People who want to see a MLB game in New York would save some money by seeing the Mets rather than the Yankees.

The average cost for two tickets, hot dogs, beer and parking at Citi Field is $83.67.

People in Chicago also have a choice, and not just based on loyalty.

The average cost for the Chicago White Sox in U.S. Cellular Field: $62.33.

The average cost for the Chicago Cubs in Wrigley Field: $76.17.

In Los Angeles, the Dodgers come in with an average in Dodgers Stadium of $73.83.

Slightly south, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in Angel Stadium come in at $52.67.
