Using data collected by Team Marketing during surveys of Major League Baseball teams we created the Adult Cost Index (ACI) which is how much it might cost one fan to attend a game.

Similar to Team Marketing’s Fan Cost Index (FCI), which looks at the cost of attending a game for a family of four, the ACI is the cost for a single fan to purchase an average-priced ticket, one beer, one soft drink, one hot dog, and half the cost of parking at the stadium.

On the next few pages we’ll take a closer look at how much it costs fans to go see all 30 MLB teams.
