6. Tampa Bay Rays

Average ticket price: $20.39

Change from 2012: +2.8%

Tampa is no easy place to be a sports fan. The economy has drained jobs and left homeowners and their mortgages underwater. The NFL's Buccaneers routinely black out home games on local television thanks to slumping attendance and shrinking expendable income. Even with three playoff appearances in the past five years and an always-formidable pitching staff featuring reigning Cy Young winner David Price, it gets tough to go out to Tropicana Field on a regular basis. In fairness to the Rays, they've kept the average ticket price hovering around $20 territory and have kept the team competitive enough for fans to enjoy when they finally do have enough cash to splurge on a ticket.
