PHOENIX -- Arizona Diamondbacks fans, starved by a winter without their favorite sport, have more than just the 2013 season opener to serve up satisfaction at the ballpark. Chase Field has some of the cheapest concessions in the major leagues.
A CNNMoney survey of 26 of the 30 MLB ballparks showed Chase Field has the cheapest beer. Diamondbacks fans can soak up a 14-ounce glass of suds for just $4. Compare that to some of the most expensive parks, like the home of the Washington Nationals, where the best deal fans will find during a game is a 16-ounce draft for $8.
Drinks aren't the only deal at Chase Field.
The most expensive hot dog in the majors is the 2-foot-long "Boomstick" sold at Texas Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas. But unlike Texas -- where everything is bigger -- Chase Field and the Diamondbacks are sighted in on savings, offing an entire value menu of $1.50 items, including the basic ballpark frank, popcorn and soda.
"Kids can get food items for $1.50 -- corn dog, hot dog, milk, soda, popcorn -- every game," said Derrick Hall, president of the Arizona Diamondbacks. "Fans can bring their own food and water in. We do not want people to feel like their wallets are down when they come here."
