The Chicago Cubs have a new major league title: most expensive ticket.

Numbers released Wednesday by Team Market Report show the Cubs beat out the Boston Red Sox for the priciest ticket in baseball, at $52.56. That's nearly twice the average Major League Baseball ticket price of $26.74.

The report shows Cubs ticket prices have jumped more than 10 percent since last season, the second highest increase in the league.

It says a day a Wrigley for a family of four this season will cost about $330. That includes food and concessions.

White Sox tickets, meanwhile, cost about $39 a piece. A family outing runs about $250, according to the report.

The Cubs' home opener is scheduled for Monday afternoon, against Milwaukee.
