Arizona Diamondbacks Still the Cheap-Beer Champions of Major League Baseball
Good news, Diamondbacks fans: Chase Field is still home to the cheapest beer in baseball.
Fourteen ounces of beer at a Diamondbacks game is still $4, making this at least the fifth season in a row the D-backs have had the cheapest beer in baseball.
Actually, the "Fan Cost Index," measures Diamondbacks games as the cheapest in baseball, for the eighth year in a row.
That basket of goods includes the price of four average tickets, two beers, four soft drinks, four hot dogs, parking for one car, two programs, and two adult-sized hats. The annual Team Marketing Report measures the Diamondbacks' index at a little less than $127, which is easily the cheapest in the MLB. The San Diego Padres are the second-cheapest, at more than $153, and it goes all the way up to the Boston Red Sox, at more than $350.
Although the D-backs' $4, 14-ounce beer doesn't sound that great compared to the price of a beer outside of Chase Field, consider that fans of other teams all have it worse. At Fenway Park, a 12-ounce beer is $7.75, which is up 50 cents over last year.
With that, happy Opening Day.
