Inspired by mandmandm's thread about Chicago beer sales, here is a list of the alcohol policies for all the MLB teams. Some are incomplete as they had no info on the official team websites.

Shea Stadium
We have established the following ground rules to ensure that the enjoyable ballpark experience is not spoiled by the behavior of inappropriate individuals:

It is illegal to consume alcoholic beverages on the sidewalks or in the parking lots; anyone doing so will be subject to arrest.
Bottles, cans, and coolers are not permitted in the stadium.
Alcoholic beverages and controlled or illegal substances may not be brought into the stadium.
Drunk or disorderly fans will be denied admittance to the stadium.
Intoxicated or under-aged fans will not be permitted to purchase or consume alcoholic beverages at Shea Stadium.
Drunk or disorderly fans inside the stadium will be ejected and may be subject to arrest.
Fans using foul or abusive language will be subject to ejection.
Fans interfering with play in any manner, including the throwing of objects onto the field or entering the field, will be subject to arrest.
RFK Stadium
No alcoholic beverages may be brought inside RFK Stadium. Washington DC law prohibits the sale of alcoholic beverages to persons under the age of 21. Therefore, all fans under the age of 30 should be prepared to show proper identification and proof of age when purchasing alcoholic beverages at RFK Stadium. At the concession stands and in the suites, beer sales end at the conclusion of the seventh inning but may also be discontinued earlier at the discretion of the Washington Nationals and RFK Stadium. Fans may not take any alcoholic beverages out of the stadium.
Oriole Park
Vending of alcohol in the stands will conclude at the end of the 7th inning, or three hours after the first pitch, whichever comes first. Concession stand sales will be terminated at the end of the 8th inning, or three and a half hours after the schedule first pitch, whichever comes first.
Petco Park
The San Diego Padres wish to ensure all guests have a memorable experience at PETCO Park. For those inclined to enjoy alcoholic beverages, we are pleased to make them available at concession locations throughout the ballpark. We encourage all guests who consume alcohol to do so in a responsible manner.

Guests will be asked to present a valid ID (state issued Drivers License, stateID, Military ID, or US Passport). All guests appearing under 30 years of age will be asked to provide proper identification.

Guests will be limited to two alcoholic beverages per transaction.

Guest should understand that sales of alcoholic beverages cease at the end of the 7th inning.


The Padres and Sportservice reserve the right to alter these policies at any time.

California liquor regulations prohibit guests from bringing alcohol into PETCO Park. Alcohol may not be removed from the ballpark at any point.

The Padres and Sportservice reserve the right to refuse or discontinue service of alcoholic beverages at any time.

When I was Great American Ballpark last month, the signs on the beer vendors and stands prominently stated one drink per id, not two.

I observed this rule was strictly enforced.

Petco is next to the gaslamp which has tons of bars and restraunts. Drinking issues are not a problem here as San Diegans tend to keep a mild manner among themselves even while drunk until the raiders come here or the dodgers. Usually the raiders game is the only real problem of the 2. Almost forgot the Steelers they are problem causers

Why is it that California stadiums (and others I would imagine) don't have beer guy's? You must actually get up and miss the action because they have no delivery service. Is that a state law?

Because they dont train the vendors many whom are high school graduates on how to check id's and what not. It has to due with one of californias laws, which we have tons of.

When I was at Olympic Stadium in Montreal, if I remember correctly, you could buy beer up until the last out of the game. I was underage at the time so I could have been wrong, but that's what I remember.
