Seth Gitter writes about a bargain of an American professional sport: baseball. A bargain, that is, for fans whose team regularly has bad seasons.
There are plenty of deals to be had at major league ball parks. Granted if your favorite team is the Red Sox or Yankees your [sic] less likely to find deals. I have been to several Nationals games for only $5. Several teams have promotions. Like for $15 in Baltimore on Thursday nights you get a seat and a Boog Powell BBQ sandwich. In Milwaukee you can get free tickets by filling your tank at BP. Even when my wife and I wanted to go Dodger Stadium on father’s day against their inter-league rival the Angles [sic], I found tickets for $25 on Ebay. . . . Nationals, Brewers, and Orioles tickets are cheap. Red Sox and Yankee tickets are more expensive. The first set of teams have [sic] not been playing well over the last decade, the second has. Generally as teams do better they get more fans and they raise ticket prices.
As far as professional sporting events go, $5 or even FREE is unheard of. Heck, that’s cheaper than a first-run film and many museums even.
So if your local team (or that of the city you’re visiting) is a loser, maybe now is the best time to get into the game! You can, of course, always root for the other team. . .
