Baseball is America’s favorite pastime and it doesn't come cheap.

According to a 2016 study by Major League Baseball the average cost of attending a baseball game for two people is just under $78. That includes the tickets, hot dogs, beer and parking. The least expensive stadium to catch a game is the Angels stadium in Anaheim with the most expensive being the home of the Boston Red Sox. Tony La Russa is chief baseball analyst and advisor for the Arizona Diamondbacks. He says part of the cost goes to player salaries and the players need to remember that.

“I think this is the best point I can make you need to remind guys if they come into professional baseball they should come in because they love the competition and want to be excellent, respect the professionals. Don't come in just because you think this is a great way to make money because you'll never really become the best you can be.”

La Russa says baseball has become a very expensive form of entertainment but teams keep bringing people in; win or lose.
