Here’s What It Will Cost You to Be A Minnesota Twins Fan in 2018
Major League Baseball's 2018 season officially gets underway today, with all 30 teams in action for the first time since last September. So, if you're a Twins fan, here's what it will cost this year compared to other teams. It's no surprise that baseball means big money, right? Even the league-mandated minimum salary for all players is over half a million dollars ($507,500 to be precise), but even if you're just a fan, things can get expensive.
A new survey by PlayNJ.com adds up the cost of a typical day at the ballpark (Target Field, for instance.) It says that, on average, a ticket for the game will run you $65, throw in another $16 for parking, another $15 to $20 for food and drinks, plus another $16 for a team cap and you're spending about $120 per person... per game! Multiply that by 3 or 4 people, if you're taking the whole family, and you're spending some big-time money to see the boys of summer in action!
The site also ranked all 30 teams on what it would cost if you bought a ticket to every home game, all season long. Here, us loyal Twins fans finally get some relief:
While the Chicago Cubs come in as the most expensive team when it comes to ticket prices, our Minnesota Twins are ranked as the 6th LEAST expensive team. (Still, the site says it'll run you $6,365.08 to buy a ticket for every home game at Target Field!)
Of course, you can catch pretty much every Twins game this season on FSN North-- and that is probably way cheaper.
