Indians lower concession prices for 2013

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - A hot dog and a beer will cost less at Cleveland's Progressive Field this year.

So will nachos, pretzels, popcorn, pizza and bratwursts.

The Cleveland Indians announced the rollback of concession prices on Thursday. Team president Mark Shapiro said it came in response to fans who have called for more affordable food and drink at the ballpark.

The team said hot dogs will start at $3 - a 33% reduction - and 12-ounce domestic beers will be $4, a drop of 24%, during the 2013 season.

Prices of nachos, pretzels, popcorn, pizza and bratwursts will drop by 25%. Plus, soda refills will be only $2.

Plus, the number of $1 hot dog nights at the stadium will increase to 15 - 6 more than last season.
