A new study ranked Major League Baseball stadium prices and you may be surprised which baseball team is the most expensive to watch at its home park.

According to a ranking by Go Banking Rates, the average cost of spending a day at the ballpark for two people is $77.92, when you include tickets, hot dogs, beers and parking. But that price changes depending on which baseball stadium you go to.

The most expensive tickets in Major League Baseball are at Fenway Park, where the lowest priced season tickets to see the Boston Red Sox at home are at an average of $48 a game. If you’re looking to spend a lot less, you can get a ticket to see the Los Angles Angels at Angel Stadium, at an average of $9.80 a ticket, which are the cheapest stadium tickets, according to the report.

You may have thought watching the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium would be the most expensive. While they don’t top the list, they are close, ranking third for most expensive with their cheapest season tickets averaging at $28.20. Going to see the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field costs more than seeing the Yankees. They ranked second for more expensive stadium tickets, with an average price for the cheapest tickets being just over $32.

Some other fun facts for baseball fans: it costs $35 to park at the Red Sox and Yankee stadiums, while parking is free at the Tropicana Field to watch the Tampa Bay Rays.

You’ll probably get hungry during the game, so the cheapest hot dogs you can get are at the Cincinnati Reds‘ Great American Ball Park, where you can get one dog for just $1. However, if you want a hot dog while watching the New York Mets at Citi Field, that will cost you a lot more at $6.25 per hot dog.

But what’s a hot dog without a beer. If you’re looking for the cheapest beer, that’s at either Chase Field for the Arizona Diamondbacks or at Progressive Field to see the Cleveland Indians. Beers at those stadiums are only $4. It’ll cost you a little more to get a buzz at a Red Sox, Chicago Cubs or Philadelphia Phillies game, where a beer at those stadiums cost $7.75.
