The Braves’ payroll is near the bottom of the league. Their beer prices, however, among the steepest in major league baseball.

According to Team Marketing Report’s latest Fan Cost Index, the $7.25 suds ($0.45 price per ounce) sold at Turner Field are among the most expensive in the sport.

The average price for a brew across baseball is $5.98. While Arizona sells the cheapest beer at $4, of the 32 ball clubs, the Los Angeles Angels’ per-ounce price of $0.28 is the smallest in baseball.

Eight other baseball stadium beers are deemed pricier than Turner Field.

Based on the data collected in a survey of all ballparks, the Boston Red Sox charge ($7.75 – $0.65 per ounce) for their smallest beer option at Fenway is a at least $0.15 more than any other team in the majors.

But then again, everything is more expensive in Boston. The average non-premium
season ticket price of $52.34 is baseball’s highest. (And let’s not forget the $35 for parking.)

You can take heart, the Braves’ average non-premium season ticket price of $19.14 is third lowest behind San Diego and Arizona.
