It's home openers for dozens of teens today handling baseball kicking up it doesn't really you late spring weather.
Several I mean Minnesota they're freezing out there watching their -- kind of chilly here in New York as well.
We don't in many ways opening day and baseball in general as a great economic indicator how is that Jennifer thank you for coming out I think it will Leahy said we as the Yankees and the Red Sox in the Phillies in the breeze it's opening day -- -- -- really excited about it.
How a very.
There is this a broader picture that you can really take away from baseball.
Because it's such a long season you know there's a 160.
Genes which means there's -- it.
Games at home that's a lot of seeds that need to be so yes I have lots of things exactly.
And and people aren't going to be purchasing them and that's really -- way on -- bottom line and men and they already have pretty thin margins.
Another thing about the style is it really.
It's and it goes it's targeted towards a big group of Americans say you have baby -- -- their families of a lot of families going have.
Middle class people upper middle class -- so it is kind of abroad.
View of consumer spending in America and no way to take a break from some.
You know wonk here economic terms like dvd and the consumer price and so -- economic -- essentially because.
People have money to spare.
-- they mind.
By taking -- week on average very expensive opening day tickets for the giants north of 200 of course they want us here today yankees of course -- of 200 it.
The Red Sox those are very expensive tickets so -- -- taking a family opening day that's cost 2000.
-- they can really add up -- in by a couple small -- flat screen TV is in town for that price.
Because you're paying for this ticket then your paying for a family of four and -- you know if -- the parents on a drink Beers.
It all adds up so you really have to be careful in terms of that and that some teens granite it's going for a little bit less this year because of the economy.
Right you know that Red Sox yankees game last year at Fenway Park was gone for more than 300 no she had beginning opening -- opening day and keep the same game -- Boston 300 this year it's close says 200 -- have anything to do the team's performance -- -- they cut it.
It could definitely because you know the Yankees are having a lot of issues that have big DL list right now and -- Red Sox had a pretty.
It it she -- in last -- there are issues but it also has to do with the economy.
Yeah USA today did a great story they basically looked at year's end rot prices at all the stadiums him and beer is the most expensive Washington Nationals Park the cheapest -- there is eight bucks that's expensive.
The cheapest beer is eight dollars and -- -- -- in the books allowed -- -- to.
Yeah editing to keep climbing from there and then you're mad at Citi -- have the most expensive -- which is six dollars and 25 cents.
But there are some teens have cutting prices on these concessions you know one team has.
A dollar hot dogs -- my six and a quarter for the price of one at Citi Field but the point is where the teams are lacking in ticket.
Revenue they're China green customers and by saying -- name.
Beer cost less money have you noticed things like that -- our customer is the Cleveland Indians earlier this year said that they would -- price on twelve -- domestic -- to twelve dollar -- -- I'm stays -- side of four dollars -- -- -- hair and a good -- -- great deal considering -- industry norm has nine -- is that it can go even higher -- for domestic your -- especially when you're thinking about a bar in New York City I'm not even five or six dollars.
So what's the deal and of course some of that is because they had a pretty dismal season -- -- hear from him.
And it's kiss my and but not their attendance rate was 46%.
And that means that less than half of their stadium was filled up.
During majority of their home games so did did cheaper Beers for the -- So that when this season and they're hoping to kind of draw on those people spokespeople for the -- said that they're hoping it kind of cuts down and barriers to.
The enjoyment of the game.
At the stadium -- -- this evening in Cleveland who have alienated -- -- something some tears aren't working with combo deals like he said -- -- the hot dog deal and one person I talked to his name's Mike and raise the format president of the Texas Rangers and he said he really sees these teams going in after action so offerings -- -- These combo deals and -- they're gonna.
They're going to take a smaller profit -- -- for example if they do something like that.
At least -- bodies into the stands and that's what these teams really -- because then they can make more money it.
Her purchased because people are buying higher volume and needy instead of going -- Going and eating at home more than that she never had violent eat dinner and give FMI far in the stadium big inning 323.
-- -- he says like everything -- best seats are in my living room.
And -- isn't afraid -- look eggs and do it easily to entice people off that counts as a -- -- and but it.
These stadiums -- the restaurants there isn't idea let him out the ticket prices will cost an average for this season.
But that I'm not -- now I don't know what they were last season by it.
If if all indicators are planes that they probably will be allowed -- And that's because six the brain and -- not they are cheaper than other needs you know and -- does go for higher but it's because they only have to what they only have twenty regular season games so -- franchise 160.
T exactly so those franchises are responsible for filling thousands if not ten thousands of more seats -- season so.
While the tickets may be -- -- -- a day.
Are still having to make up all of those sales.
And hopefully they note things incidents at Atlanta this weekend how much money involved for the first time -- -- that.
-- it's really great at speaking of the Texas Rangers my brother is working for them.
He just started there's.
Doubts that it is -- -- yeah meaning they plan Arlington a bandstand in the living in Dallas heading into -- if you don't see him.
