I am doing a project on ticket prices in baseball , and was wondering if anyone knows where i can find out the team profits for mlb teams from last year, and the amount of city tax they charge for tickets, or the sales tax for each city?

Thanks guys.

I don't mean to be a smartass here, but if you find accurate figures on team profits, you'll be a better detective than Sherlock Holmes and Batman combined. MLB books are the most closely guarded secrets since the documentation of the alien crash in Roswell New Mexico.

Thanks guys. You can get that kind of info if you are a member of forbes or hoovers. Being a member is kinda of expensive i think to get access to that information. A lot of business use it as data for inestments and stuff. So if you get access to that stuff online that would be sweet and by all means share it.
