Study: Reds boast one of most affordable average ticket prices in baseball

There is no denying that the cost of attending a Major League Baseball game can be expensive. Not only do you have to splurge for the price of the ticket itself, but most fans also have to worry about expenses such as parking, food, drink and perhaps a souvenir or two.

With that being said, if you are going to attend a game, one could do far worse damage on their wallet than taking in a contest at Great American Ball Park. According to a new study conducted by Team Marketing, the Reds boast one of the most affordable average ticket prices in the league.

With an average ticket price of $22.03, only six MLB franchises offer a lower average cost than the Reds. Those franchises are Arizona, San Diego, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay, and Atlanta.

Furthermore, the study also concluded that the Fan Cost Index for a Reds game, which is comprised of (4) tickets, (2) beers, (4) soft drinks, (4) hot dogs, (1) parking spot, (2) game programs, and (2) adjustable hats, is among the most affordable in MLB at $168.12. Only Cleveland, San Diego, and Arizona have lower FCI's than Cincinnati. So, keep this in mind next time you venture down to GABP.
