baseball-field-828713_960_720I love baseball. I grew up in a baseball house. The New Yorks Mets  games could always count on me  as a viewers. I wish I could go more. It can be very pricey to go to a game.

Some Major League Baseball stadiums cater to their fans with affordable tickets and food prices, others are notorious for some pretty steep charges.

  • Two tickets
  • Two hot dogs
  • Two beers
  • Parking
