The Wall Street Journal reported on information out of the Owners Meeting that attendance at MLB games dropped 6.6% over last year.
I’ve been spoiled through the Round Rock Express and Texas Baseball. The cheapest seats for a Texas Rangers game is $17 for a random game I looked up high up in the outfield. For the Astros, $20 for the edge of the outfield.
At the Dell Diamond for an Express game I’m taking the family to next week, we bought seats 18 rows back for $12 a pop. I think the outfield lawn is $7.
We looked at tickets for an Astros game when heading to Houston later this summer, but our family is too big to justify that total cost for those seats. 🤷♂️
