The Sporting Post recently released a breakdown of each of the 30 MLB ballparks to show which is the most affordable for a family of four to attend a game. Chase Field, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks, was found to be the most affordable, edging out the Miami Marlins’ loanDepot Park.
The average cost for a family of four to take in a game at Chase is $146.
That’s about how much it would cost you for two tickets at Chavez Ravine in LA to see the Dodgers.
Chase Field is a must-see ballpark
Chase Field has undergone a few name changes over the years (Bank One Ballpark, anyone?). But it remains a must-see spot for baseball fans with its retractable roof and swimming pool in right-center field. By the way, the pool holds 35 guests for around $5,000 to $7,000 a head … and it does sell out.
Chase has updated its amenities, with a magnificent retail Caesars Sportsbook just across from the main entrance. It’s a great place to make a wager with the money you just saved on D-backs tickets. There’s also Guy Fieri’s DTPHX Kitchen + Bar, which features an eclectic menu of the chef’s most famous dishes. There is plenty to do and see on game day at Chase Field.
Chase offers affordable, unique eateries
The Sporting Post calculated the total price of four tickets, four hot dogs, two beers, two soft drinks, two hats and also parking for each MLB team.
Chase Field offers the cheapest premium ticket average price of $22.12. If you look at the Chase Field “Value Menu,” you can get a small beer for $4.99 and a small soda for $2.99. It’s also $2.99 for a corn dog and popcorn.
Baseball parks around the country have gone to great lengths to include unique eateries at their stadiums. Chase Field is no different. Among some of the special offerings are the Big Dawgs spot (specialty hot dogs), the Cactus Corn, Rey Gloria’s Tamales (a life-changing experience), a dough bar (exactly what it sounds like), and six Cold Stone Creamery locations. Yes, six.
Parking is less than half what it costs to park in LA
Parking at and around Chase Field checks in at an average of $13.90. It’s $30 for general parking at a Dodgers game.
You can pick up a souvenir D-backs hat for less than $10. If you want to take Dad to a game on Father’s Day, June 18, good seats can be had for $35. Plus, the D-backs are giving away Hawaiian shirts to those with dad bods. Pretty good haul for a Sunday holiday. And, hopefully, you’ll get to watch the No.1 team in the NL West.
By the way, the most expensive stadiums for a family of four are Fenway Park in Boston and Wrigley Field in Chicago.
Diamondbacks currently in first place in division
Not only does Chase Field have a Caesars Sportsbook AZ at the stadium, but Arizona sports betting also includes more than a dozen online sportsbooks. Placing a bet on your Diamondbacks might pay off well this season.
The D-backs are currently in first place in the National League West Division. Celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2023, the D-backs have surprised baseball analysts by moving into first a few games ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
After a 74-88 finish in 2022, not many people were thinking about the D-backs entering this season. But things have come together for manager Tory Lovullo. Arizona’s young bats have been led by Lourdes Gurriel Jr., who is currently seventh in the National League with a .310 average. Outfielder Corbin Carroll has cooled a bit from his torrid start to the season and is batting .300. Christian Walker has a team-high 36 RBIs.
On the mound, the D-backs boast two of the four seven-game winners in the National League in Zac Gallen and Merrill Kelly.
DraftKings still has the Dodgers as favorites to win the division at -260, with the D-backs next at +425, followed by the Padres at +700.
