10 Most Expensive Trips To The Ballgame in 2013

PORTLAND, Ore. (TheStreet) -- Major League Baseball may be still be one of the best values in the land, but that doesn't mean fans are getting off light.

As we've noted before, baseball hasn't had a strike since its World Series-canceling work stoppage in 1994-95 and hasn't locked out players since 1990. Even the NBA (which locked out players in 1995, 1996, 1998-99 and 2011) and the NFL (which locked out players in 2011 and referees last year) can't say the same. Fans, meanwhile, have been rewarded with ticket prices that average $27.48, according to Team Marketing Report.

That's a little more than half the price of an average NBA ticket ($50.99), slightly less than half the cost of a ticket to an NHL game ($61.01) and well below the price you'd spend on any given Sunday in the NFL ($78.38). It's also 1.8% higher than it was last year and includes a few teams pricing their tickets at nearly double that average.

We took a look around the league and found $10 cities where the average Major League Baseball ticket price borders on myth and looked into what each gives fans for their money:
