    Rockies are in the same facility as the D-backs in Scottsdale. The White Sox play in Phoenix too.

    That's a shame because TEP(if it's still named that) is a nice facility.

    Tickets at a major league park, parking and snacks really add up.

    My favorite Ballpark used to be the old Wolfson Park in Jacksonville Florida. The (Jax) Expo's played there, now it's the Suns. Cheap tickets were available. Beer, soft drinks, hots dogs, etc. weren't that bad. And it was a pretty ballpark.


    I'm gonna check out the Gwinnett County Braves. They are the AAA Braves affiliate. It's been a while since I've been to a minor league game but the quality of baseball is good and the prices aren't (or at least weren't) that bad.

    Wow, everything on the East coast is higher. I just looked up some sample ticket pricing for the 2011 STL Cards season. I couldn't find the individual priced tickets, but here's the price of a package deal-----food, drinks and ticket to game. It's definitely a better deal at about $92. I think the cheapest non-package tickets are about $20, maybe lower.

    Here's what's great about baseball. Variety. Aside from the Yankees run, you basically have someone different winning the World Series. Since 2000, you've had 9 different teams win the World Series(Yanks, D-Backs, Angels, Red Sox, Marlins, White Sox, Phillies, Cardinals, and Giants). Compare that with the NBA where in the last 30 years, only 8 different teams have won the NBA title compared to 19 different MLB teams have won in that same time period.
