-- baseball ticket prices on the rise leaving fans wondering whether America's past time.
It's really want cash -- the price for a non premium seat has risen two point 7% from last -- the biggest jump since 2009.
How do you get the best value -- planning a trip to the ballpark here breakdown is -- past few comments with MarketWatch -- -- you pleasure to be here first tell -- -- ticket prices are rising.
Well the big thing it's players' salaries.
You know ticket prices we looked at it.
The average salary was 191000.
For a player today at 3.2 million that the 161000%.
Increase through somebody's got to pay for it in the fans do that.
Kind of sad actually here -- it's not a great deal for the fans so are the teens are the organizations doing anything to try to bring those prices down.
A little bit on me when you have -- teams are offering a lot of special so for example you'll see something like a fort pack you know for tickets for fifty dollars with a hot dog and soda.
Teams are also doing what they called dynamic pricing the same thing you see in the airlines so they will raise and lower prices based on demand so there's some ways to get some good deals that way and demand is up there right attendance is pretty good -- -- -- -- solid yeah I mean people will pay you the finger at Major League Baseball will tell you is short a little bit pricey but a lot cheaper than going to a football or basket.
Ball game and I would think prices even rise higher on holidays for example tried to take my family did take my family to a Mets game on his game and I kind of surprise -- Right right 11 way to think about -- is to go off peak so to speak I mean it's okay go on a weeknight you're probably gonna do much better than if you go on the weekend or in a big big big game day.
Okay so let's talk about this this surveyed rice formula ticket city ranked Pittsburgh Pirates.
As the best baseball team for your buck coming back for -- how to come up.

That's like it kicking it went silent got to -- hunters that are -- a perfect example exactly so -- figured the average price from the resale market.
The the team's winning percentage how well they're doing.
And the quality of the components they face so basically a team like the Pittsburgh Pirates did really well.
The average price was fifteen dollars on the resale market the team is very competitive this year almost first in its division.
And they played a good schedule so fans are getting a lot for their money it's.
Don't have a lot of fair weather fans in baseball right says it's true you know root root root for the -- you're gonna.
Are you more or less willing to pay that price -- she did go through the secondary -- -- hubs or do you go directly through the team.
It really depends I would think -- both ways certainly since there's dynamic pricing it would most of the -- I would look at what kind of -- you're getting from the club and look at the resell market and also -- -- want things like confession prices some stadiums are doing some great -- when confessions you know we used to talk about the ten dollar beer -- -- stadiums it's a four dollar and always you know you can factor that in as well.
Let me tell you something the -- hot dogs shameful vs the dodger dogs that I grew up on in -- and it's so -- so there is something to be said why equality develop.
Blog enters into it too I'm sure south past -- great to have you thanks so much -- -- --
