Great read in this morning’s USA Today on the increasing popularity of all-you-can-eat ticket packages at major league ballparks and whether teams should be concerned about such a promotion’s potential health risk to its fan base. The paper reports that at least 13 major league teams offer such a package, with prices ranging from $30-$200.
The number of teams offering similar packages would certainly increase if minor league teams were included (it certainly sounds like a promotion originating in the minors). Staten Island Yankees GM Jane Rogers noted in a conversation a couple weeks ago that they are increasing the number of all-you-can-eat dates this season after the promotion proved so successful last year.
"If you have a family, it’s best to get the package," Rogers said of the deal that gives fans unlimited passes to the team’s Pinstripe Pavilion.
As a small sampling, five of the 14 International League teams offer all-you-can-eat packages.
Buffalo offers a six-game package for $126, noting on its Website that "the more you eat, the better the deal gets."
