After reading about the straws and lids issue for the Gwinnett Stripers at Coolray Field (“Don’t put a lid on it,” April 10, 1A), this is simply the reason you can’t take your family to a ballgame.

Charging $5 for a 16-ounce drink when you can get a 32-ounce drink at QT for 99 cents. Really? This is not the big leagues. Make prices reasonable for families.!

I have not been to SunTrust Park, so based on these prices a 16-ounce drink must be $12 there. Only the rich can afford a ballgame.
