Arizona Diamondbacks offers $30 all-you-can eat tickets

For years, fans have been griping about the soaring cost of taking a family to the baseball game: tickets, parking, overpriced hot dogs, etc.

While we wish the circumstances were different, the flailing economy has some teams desperate to put butts in the seats, and the result is what could charitably be called a "promotional environment."

To that end, the Arizona Diamondbacks are offering 675 seats that come with all the food you can eat, including hot dogs, popcorn, peanuts, Frito Lay or Corazonas chips, Pepsi soft drinks and Aquafina bottled water. They're $30 for most games and 15 "premiere games" are $35.
