A new Associated Press-Knowledge Networks poll finds that baseball fans think the high cost of attending games is by far the biggest problem in Major League Baseball right now.
The poll released Thursday found a whopping 63 percent of respondents said high prices are the game's top trouble - up from 45 percent in a survey right before opening day. Worries over players making too much money or taking steroids lagged behind.
The fans' concerns seem to be having an effect at the turnstiles. MLB attendance is down more than 6 percent this season. The average ticket price is up.
