A night out can be expensive, but going to a baseball game is money well spent in my opinion. Eventbrite did a great survey outlining how much people spend on a night out, which is super interesting! I thought it would be fun to compare how much a night out at a baseball game is compared to an average night out!
Because I'm from San Diego, I love cheering on the Padres. Petco Park is absolutely gorgeous and right next to the water. Since I don't live in the city, we usually take the train downtown and then walk to the park from there. This cuts down on transportation costs, such as Uber or a taxi.
Tickets are somewhat expensive, but if you purchase them in advance and don't mind having the best seat in the house, you can find them for an affordable price! Places like Eventbrite have awesome opportunities for buying and selling tickets for a great price as well!
The best part of a ball game in my opinion is the food. Of course, if you're over 21, drinks are also fun! Some of it is overpriced, but I'd say it was pretty average, as the average person spends $10 on late night food and $26 on drinks on a night out.
Overall, ball games are a great way to spend a summer night out. The price is pretty comparable to other ways of spending a night out, plus this is one that all ages can attend and enjoy!
