There's nothing quite like an ice-cold beer at a baseball game.
In Boston, Red Sox fans can enjoy a small draft beer for $7.75 – the most expensive in the big leagues.
Twins fans, who sometimes need a beer just to numb the pain of watching a game, like the two hours and 50 minutes of misery that was the Twins' 12-3 loss to the Royals in Monday's home opener, pay the second-highest price for a small draft beer in Major League Baseball, according to Business Insider.
A small draft beer at Target Field costs $7.50, but thanks to 20-ounce cups, fans pay $.38 per ounce – the tenth-best deal in MLB. Boston fans pay $.65 per ounce because a small draft beer at Fenway Park comes in a 12-ounce cup.
Other Target Field average prices, according to Team Marketing Report:
- Average Ticket: $32.59
- Premium Ticket: $74.18
- Soft drink: $5
- Hot dog: $4.50
- Parking: $6
- Cap: $20
In other words, four adult tickets, two small draft beers, four small soft drinks, four hot dogs, parking for one vehicle and two hats will cost, on average, about $230.
The Twins, losers of at least 90 games each of the last four seasons, are once again considered one of the worst teams in baseball; and one win in the first seven games of the season has provided plenty of support for pessimistic opinions.
