Cost for Four People to Attend Baseball Game

This post refers to

Jamie Sotonoff of the suburban Chicago newspaper the Daily Heraldn, with an Opening Day article on the cost of attending baseball games:

The cost of taking a family of four to see a Cubs game at Wrigley Field this year is estimated to be $305.60, and it’ll cost $258.68 for a White Sox game, according to the 2011 Fan Cost Index, a dollar amount calculated annually by Wilmette-based Team Marketing Research.

Yeah…It’s funny to see that and then try to understand the kinds of things the front office people say about the stands not being full. I could order takeout for an entire month and watch 20-some games on my big screen TV for $300.

For the cost of one seat worth of season tickets (approx. $3,000), a person could buy a brand-new, top of the line HD TV and watch every game.
