Also, in 1998 Bleacher tickets were $12 and $6, now they are $69 to $19.
The thought of actually paying $69 to sit in the bleachers is crazy.
The thought of paying 69 bucks to sit anywhere for a ball game is crazy.
For 69 dollars a day I can go on a cruise and get 3 great meals a day plus tons of snacks if I want them, great entertainment, excellent service and transportation to some great places.
