    Wow!! This was something I just couldn't believe, although it has been a while since I have been to a MLB park for a game and a brew (At least six years). OK....Have at!

    ...And while I am at it: Where (which ballpark/stadium/arena -- regadless of sport), is the cheapest -- make that least costly -- beer?

    At Dodger stadium last night, my buds paid $13 for beers.

    I bought a $5 Diet Coke.

    The Miami Marlins are now playing in GAB, according to the pictures.

    I just knew the Jays would have to be on there. Prices for beer at Jays, Argos and Leafs games are fucking larcenous.

    That isn't a current story either. Jays went dry for liquor license violations for three games, including their home opener, in 2009.

    More proof that Fenway and Wrigley aren't ballparks, they're theme parks.

    I always thought it was ridiculous that the Cardinals charged so much for beer, given that they play in a ballpark named for a beer company that owns the team.

    If people are paying, why wouldn't they charge so much?

    Could have sworn beers were $9 at Nationals Park when I visited two years ago.

    Unless they give a price per ounce, I don't know how you can compare.

    I paid $8 for a beer at a Flying Squirrels game last week. That beer was 32 oz, though.

    I have bias but Miller Park is pretty tough to beat when it comes to seeing an MLB game for a decent price.

    Face value tickets are pretty cheap, but for many games you can get tickets on the secondary market on weeknights for 50 cents. You can get a good seat just about any night for $20.

    Beers run about $6-8, but everyone tailgates, and you are allowed to bring in your own peanuts, water, closed sodas, brats, burgers, etc. Basically anything is OK to bring in besides alcohol. So tailgate in the lot and buy one beer or two if you need it. Best value probably in all of pro sports, which is probably why they can draw 38,000 on a Tuesday night in a city the size of Milwaukee.
