Baseball Ticket Prices -- and the value of the Phillies...

The past few weeks have been rough for our Philadelphia Phillies, that is for sure.

But there is one area where they are near the very top of Baseball rankings. Apparently our World Series Champions have some of the lowest ticket prices in Baseball.

See this fascinating graph ( from Flip Flop Fly Ball for the details. While you are there, take a look at some of the other Baseball-related graphs Craig Robinson has done. Mr. Robinson has a unique knack for presenting information.

I particularly like his representation of the Green Monster at Fenway, and his "Really Fantasy Baseball" game between the Wu Tang Clan and the E Street Band.

If you don't mind sitting in the cheap seats, Major League Baseball is still one of the great family entertainment bargains around. While the 108Warren clan tends to go to minor league games more often -- baseball is one of the few sports where the whole family can afford to go to a major league game on a whim.

I just wish Flyers tickets were cheaper...
