    Cubs hve highest- priced ticket

    In its annual study released Wednesday, the Team Marketing Report concluded that the Cubs have overtaken both the Yankees and Red Sox for baseball's highest-priced ticket.
    The average ticket for non-premium sections at Wrigley Field now costs $52.56, a 10.1 percent increase over last year. Boston's Fenway Park is just behind at $52.32, a 4.1 percent increase from 2009. Yankee Stadium has dropped from first to third at $51.83 after a mere 0.4 percent increase from last year.
    Of course, there's some fine print there: the Yankees petitioned to have additional lower-deck seats reclassified as premium, even though they don't include free food like the previously classified premium seats. The Cubs have a far smaller percentage classified as premium seating than either the Yankees or the Red Sox.
    Some other facts from the report:
    *The average ticket this year costs $26.74, a 1.5 percent increase from 2009. That 1.5 percent increase is the smallest since tracking began in 1991.
    *The Diamondbacks have the cheapest average ticket at $14.31. Next are the Padres ($15.15).
    *The Twins, being the only team to move into a new stadium this year, had the largest increase from 2009, a whopping 45 percent ($21.70 to $31.47).

    Good thing the Braves are my #1 team. Still, that is ridiculous for a sport with a 162 game season.

    I wouldn't pay money to watch the crap the cubs put on the field.
