PORLAND, Ore. (TheStreet) -- Major League Baseball is not built to save you money.

According to sports research firm Team Marketing Report, the average price of a ticket rose 2% from last year, to nearly $28. The price of taking driving a family of four to the game, parking and getting them tickets, food, drinks and souvenirs rose to more than $212 since the 2013 season.

It's still the most cost-effective live sporting event money can buy, but that doesn't exactly make it cheap. Its premium tickets cost $93 on average, while the average $6 price of a 16-ounce beer works out to a nearly $29 six-pack.

Keep in mind that this is a league that's increased revenue from $1.4 billion in 1995 to more than $8 billion last season. It may rival the National Football League's $9.5 billion in revenue when television contracts with Fox and Turner are renewed this year.

It isn't designed with your budget in mind -- as the sellers of its most expensive beers make clear -- but every so often it shows some mercy. We went through this season's Team Marketing Report numbers and found the seven least-expensive beers in the league. They're not exactly dirt cheap, but they're the best deals you're going to get from this sport:
