Which Ballparks Charge The Most And Which Have The Best Food
It’s finally here! Opening day for baseball, a day at the ballpark can be pretty expensive. Especially if you include the cost of food and drink to get through nine innings. Check out how pricey some of the ballparks are around baseball. Mets fans at New York’s Citi Field shell out the most for a regular hot dog at $6.25 a pop, while Cincinnati Reds’ fans can get a hot dog at Great American Ballpark for what appears to be the cheapest rate of all, just a dollar.
Thirsty fans pay the most at Washington Nationals games where the cheapest beer available is a 16-ounce can for $8. For $4, beer drinkers can get a 12-ounce draft at Cleveland Indians games, while the best deal seems to be a 14-ounce beer for $4 at Arizona Diamondbacks’ Chase Field.
Detroit even had one of the best Unique food options:
At Comerica Park, Tigers fans can buy a variety of fried options, including a $7 deep-fried red hot sausage on a stick and a $5 package of deep-fried peanuts.
At Giants games, seafood lovers can enjoy an $8.75 bread bowl of clam chowder or a $16.50 crab sandwich on San Francisco sourdough bread. For those with a sweet tooth, the stadium offers a $10 Ghirardelli hot fudge sundae in homage to San Francisco’s famous Ghirardelli Square.
Minnesota Twins fans can enjoy “state fair classics” like fried pickles ($7.50) and turkey drumsticks ($9.75) at Target Field in Minneapolis.
Texas Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas, is home to a $26 monster of a hot dog dubbed the “Boomstick,” a 2-foot-long beef hot dog, smothered in chili, nacho cheese, jalapenos and caramelized onions on a potato bun.
