Now the personal finance website GoBakingRates.com has put together numbers that back up that opinion.

According to the web site, which uses four factors when comparing prices across all 30 MLB stadium, PNC Park is the seventh-best deal in the entire league with an average two-person cost of $62.43.

GoBankingRates.com uses the following factors when coming up with that price: the price of two tickets, two hot dogs, two beers and parking.

According to the site, that cost for PNC Park is $62.43 with two tickets coming to $29.93, two hots dogs $6.50 ($3.25 each), two beers $11 ($5.50 each) and parking $15. Although parking can actually be gotten half that cost – – as little as $5 to $7 if you park in city-owned garages downtown and walk across the Clemente Bridge or take the subway, for free, to the North Shore.

While PNC Park is the seventh-cheapest park, the price has gone up over the last few years in correlation with the Pirates success and it’s now the second-cheapest stadium in the National League Central.

Cincinnati’s Great American Ballpark is the cheapest in the NL Central with an average cost of $61.30.

The cheapest stadium in the league is Angel Stadium of Anaheim, the home of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at $47.60.

The most expensive game is a Boston Red Sox game at Fenway Park coming in at $157.
