In their latest attempt to draw fans to the ballpark, the Indians are promoting reductions in concession prices: $4 beers, $3 hot dogs and $2 soda refills, according to CBS Sports. The team will also have 15 $1 hot dog nights throughout the season. Last season, beer was $5.50, and the average across MLB stadiums was $6.17.

"We've asked our fans what they want most in their ballpark experience at Progressive Field, and more affordable concessions prices routinely top the list,” said Indians president Mark Shapiro (via MLBlogs network). “This is a way for us to let fans know we're listening to them and that we value them.”
