darn baseball stats
The 2009 Major League Baseball Fan Cost Index is out with lots of fodder for someone out there. Just a quick comparison with the 2002 report is interesting. Back then the Pirates were above the league average in this cost metric and average ticket prices were $20.52. For 2009 they are 2nd to the cheapest in the index number and average ticket prices are $15.39. I'm too lazy to calculate this, but are the Pirates the team with the largest decrease in ticket prices over that time? Factor in inflation, either the overall level of the higher inflation in team salaries, and that is quite a drop in price.
Not the same kind of stats I know..... but I still think someone ought to register bringbackstatsgeek.com to entice Brian O. out of his pseudo-retirement.
