10 Most Expensive Trips To The Ballgame in 2013
9. Houston Astros
Average ticket price: $30.09
Change from 2012: NoneAt least Marlins fans have two World Series wins in the past 20 years for their trouble. Houston fans have not only never seen a world series title come their way, but haven't seen their team make the playoffs since being swept out of the World Series by the White Sox in 2005. The team was then left to wither on the vine and be sold off for parts by its former owner. Total attendance dropped from more than 3 million in 2007 to just 1.6 million last year. Average attendance, meanwhile, was chopped from more than 37,000 to less than 20,000 per game in 2012, when the new owners of this hollow husk of a franchise agreed to uproot it from the National League and shift to the American League. That means a lot more games against their in-state rival Texas Rangers, but very little to Houston fans awaiting yet another year in or near the cellar.
