Texas Among the Baseball Teams with the Most Expensive Food

Texas Rangers, Facebook

It’s opening day for most Major League Baseball teams, and it’s time to talk about the important baseball things; like the food!

Have you tried that $26 hot dog at the Texas Rangers’ stadium?  That hot dog dubbed the “Boomstick,” is a 2-foot-long beef hot dog, smothered in chili, nacho cheese, jalapenos and caramelized onions on a potato bun.  Even if you break it down into 6-inch portions and share it with your buddies, that monster still costs $6.50 per person.

What do baseball fans around the country pay for concessions, and how does Texas compare?

CNN says most fans pay between $3 and $5 for a basic hot dog, and $5 to $7 for the cheapest beer.  (We should mention that the Rangers’ basic hot dog does not cost $26, and is in the average price range for hot dogs across the country.  And the Rangers are known for Dollar Hot Dog nights too.)  The most expensive hot dog at a major league baseball game is at New York’s Citi Field, where fans shell out $6.25 for a dog.  Cincinnati Reds’ pay just a dollar for a hot dog.

If you want a beer, it will cost you the most at Washington Nationals games.  The cheapest beer available there is a 16-ounce can for $8.

Rangers and Astros fans pay, on average, far less than other baseball fans around the country, so we should feel like we’re getting a deal when we drive to Dallas or Houston for a game.

The Rangers and Astros play each other again in Houston Tuesday and Wednesday.
