Last night at the ballpark was so fun. Decibels off the charts all night. Place went nuts when Turner hit the granny. New Marlin Arraez hit two BOMBS.

We are going back tonight for USA v Cuba. Leaving for the ballpark in an hour beat all the traffic
I hope you and yours have a blast !!!
 
Stopped in to Publix field in Lakeland last Friday. Nothing like spring training to lift my spirits toward the end of winter but that's sort of a lazy Sunday feel. Can't imagine playoff type hype in March. Sounds fun.
I’ve always wanted to spend a week or two at a Spring Training venue …

⚾

Heard Bradenton is a lot of fun…

Doo it. West coast if FL is super cheap, weather is good and you can go to bucos games and sit closer to the action for cheaper. A great vacation.
 
Happy Opening Day Eve, fellas!

Cost to attend a game for a family of four. Get out to a game at least once this summer, boys. Can’t beat a ballgame with friends or family. Get there early and watch BP.

Bet the under last night on the Sox game thinking Sox would win 4-2.
No idea we would be outpitched by a Pirate lol
 
gonna sit on the couch ice my knee, eat some edibles and root in my over 4.5 -130 first 5 in the Red Sox pirates game before I take a nap.

No idea where there is $35 parking around Wrigley Field. $50 would be hard to find.
 
They do those numbers every year and they're crap. Just for example Yankees have tons of $5 seats (mid week orioles games mostly). You can bring in food and sealed drinks to any game. Baseball remains one of the most affordable family live entertainment options.
 
By and large, Yankee and Mets tickets are substantially more expensive than Marlins tickets (I visited all 3 parks last year).

That chart doesn’t factor in fans bringing food and drinks into the ballpark (I actually bring three sealed 16 oz waters into each game for my sons and I but I enjoy the ballpark food so I’m happy to pay for it).

Agree that MLB is by far the most affordable pro sport to watch in America.
 
100% and after I posted I saw the spirit of your post was "go see a game." I'm too used to ass clowns on sports talk saying they can afford to go to a game or that it costs $500 for a family of four blah blah blah.
