If You Want a Beer at Wrigley, It’s Gonna Cost You
See what it costs to go to a game, eat a hot dog, and drink a beer at every major league ballpark. Wrigley doesn't have the cheapest beer, but guess who does?
If you've ever wondered how much it would cost you to see a major league baseball game, including knocking back a hot dog and a cold beer, at every ballpark in America, here are your answers.
The study was conducted by WebstaurantStore.com. They've put together all the numbers and added some fun facts along the way.
Let's start with those beer prices. The cost of a beer at Wrigley is about as high as it gets in the MLB. And if you're a Rockies fan, how blessed are fan that see games at Coors Field. Hey Budweiser, any interest in buying some naming rights at Wrigley? We'd love $3 beers.
When it comes to hot dogs, Wrigley Field isn't lowest price, but it isn't the highest either. But, If I'm being honest, I don't care too much about the cost of a well made Chicago-style hot dog.
Like I mentioned earlier, webstaurantstore.com, added a lot of fun facts to their study
Fun Fact: An estimated 22 million hot dogs are sold yearly at major league ballparks. Lined up from end-to-end, that’s 3,100 miles, or about the distance from Boston to San Francisco.
And, while it isn't cheap to see a Cubs game at Wrigley, it's not the most expensive ticket. That honor belongs to the Boston Red Sox.
When you combine at the numbers; ticket, beer and hot dog prices, the cheapest day at the ball park is Chase Field, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
