Infographic: MLB ticket prices by day of the week

I had considered treating myself to the Royals-Twins game this past Saturday — at least, up until I checked to see the price of tickets for that night’s game.  The chart below demonstrates my decision to stay in, rather than drive out to the ballpark.  By the time you factor in parking and food, a fan ends up relinquishing a good part of their paycheck to attend a Saturday ballgame.

This chart was actually created in 2010, but I’m sure we can all agree it’s still a pretty accurate depiction of trends in ticket prices today.
