Nationals fans are paying more money to attend a baseball game this year in D.C. than fans do in most cities nationwide.
Nationals Park is the seventh most expensive stadium to see a Major League Baseball game, according to a new District, Measured analysis of Team Marketing Report data. To find the cost of attending a game, Team Marketing Report determines the amount a family of four people pays for four tickets, two beers, four soft drinks, four hot dogs, parking and two adult-size hats.
The cost of a regular ticket was $30.63 in 2010 and is now $36.02, according to the data.
At Nationals Park, a family of four can expect to spend $232.08. That sum puts the Nationals between the St. Louis Cardinals and Minnesota Twins.
The most expensive team to see is the Boston Red Sox, at $350.86. The least expensive team is the Arizona Diamondbacks, at $126.89. A family pays $211.68 on average to see an MLB game. The league has 30 teams.
