Minor League Baseball will soon release the results of their 2017 Fan Cost Survey, covering all 160 Minor League teams, and the Pawtucket Red Sox will be named the leader in affordability among all 30 clubs in Triple-A Baseball.
The average cost for a family of four at a PawSox game is only $55, including parking, two adult tickets, two child tickets, four hot dogs, two sodas, and two beers. That total is the best in the International League, the Pacific Coast League, and is well below the average cost among all 160 clubs in Minor League Baseball.
The average cost to attend an International League game is $70.36, with the PawSox leading the league in affordability in the 14-team league. In the 16-team Pacific Coast League, which is also Triple-A, the average is $82.09.
The average for all of Minor League Baseball’s 160 affiliated clubs is $66.17, more than $10 higher than the PawSox.
“Affordable family fun has been the bedrock of the PawSox for decades, and we seek to continue to preserve, protect, and provide that experience in the years ahead,” said PawSox President Dr. Charles A. Steinberg. “We enjoy welcoming families to a warm, hospitable environment upon which they can rely for an afternoon or evening of affordable wholesome pleasure.”
The PawSox have already committed to preserve their lowest-priced seats, $6 for children and seniors, and $9 for adults, through at least the first five years at a new ballpark in Pawtucket.
The PawSox come home tonight (Friday) to possibly their best-attended weekend of the year, featuring Independence Day Fireworks after Saturday, Sunday, and Monday evening’s games. Box seat tickets are already sold out for most of the games, while some general admission tickets remain.
