10 Highest Beer Prices in Major League Baseball

 

NEW YORK (TheStreet) --  For many Americans, springtime means just one thing: Time for baseball. 

Unfortunately, baseball fans hoping to save money at the ballpark this season will be in for a shock. According to sports research firm Team Marketing Report, the average ticket price for a Major League Baseball game during the 2015 season has increased 3.3%, costing $28.94.

In addition to an increase in ticket prices, fans are sure to notice a price change in beer. While the average price of this ballpark staple has decreased since last year, the real value is found by the ounce.

Anyone shelling out $7.50 should look carefully at how much beer they're getting. For some, paying that price for a 20-ounce beer is actually a better deal than the $5, 12-ounce beers found at four different stadiums across the U.S.

Using Team Marketing Report's Fan Cost Index, we've identified the teams with the top 10 beer prices in the league by ounce. Is your team on the list?
