In a keeper APBA league in which fielding counts, would you risk the #1 rookie draft pick on Santana, Castro or Posey, or a pitcher like Garcia, Bumgarner, Hellickson or Strasburg?

I can’t comment about other parks but as far as Comerica Park there is no reason why you couldn’t take a family of four and spend around $125 if you choose to. I usually get my tickets for Tigers games off stubhub and I usually don’t end up paying more than 20 a piece after the fees for them, and there are normally cheaper tix than that too but since I don’t have kids and it’s normally just me and my girlfriend we buy the slightly more expensive ones. So lets say you can get them for 15 a piece with fees, you’re talking $60 for tickets. I know of plenty of places to park down there for $10, so now you’re up to 70. Say you have a couple beers at $8.50 a piece, now you’re up to 87 total. Then you buy your kids a couple soft drinks a piece at $3.50 which takes you up $101. That still leaves you $24 for maybe a pretzel or a hot dog each.

Now of course if you intend on buying each kid a $40 or so souvenir plus having a full meal for the family on top of buying more expensive tickets then yeah, you could easily drop $300 at the game but those are things you certainly don’t have to do if you don’t want to.

if you want to see at&T expect at least 200$

theyre the current world champs, so theyre expensive. =)

24-27.50 for standing tickets (you do not get a seat)

30-35 for bleachers.

45-50 for top row infield.

Wow, a bit harsh on Babe Ruth. Oh well, I guess that’s the politically correct liberal viewpoint nowadays about the greatest baseball player who ever lived. You know, the real home run king who never took any sort of performance enhancing drugs during his career and actually out-homered entire teams (yes, a simplistic stat but still pretty darn cool).

Thanks for any other fantastic article. Where else may anybody get that type of information in such an ideal way of writing? I’ve a presentation next week, and I’m on the search for such info.
