Here's why it should be near sold out:

7 game win streak/in first place
Bronson Arroyo!
Schools out! First game since school's out.
Baby Bears are in town (even though their level of sucktitude is at a near high).
We've been on the road for the last 9 games and people need their reds fix.
Nice weather
No graduations, proms, spring mixers?, volleyball tournaments.
The draft might have sparked more interest as well.

Who knows, maybe it will sell out tonight!

I just called down to get tickets for Sunday and got view level seats right behind the plate in the "front row" <<using best Bob Uecker voice>>. I'm taking my two little girls and am pretty excited about it. Here's hoping that they are just as excited. :thumbup:

FWIW I called the reds season ticket line today to order some extra tickets for Saturday. They still have some nice seats available, but expect near sell-outs over the weekend. They should have 30,000+ tonight and close to 40,000 this weekend, pending decent weather.

so if you like baseball and like the reds, you should not go to games till they have won for 2 or 3 years in a row? if you are a reds fan or enjoy baseball, there is no reason to not be going to games now, just because they had bad years

Only a small percentage of fans are rabid diehards like the ones on Redszone. If you're a casual fan, (you have to have a good number of those show up to have a huge crowd) why would believe that this team is any different than ones that teased in the past? Historically, attendance doesn't improve until the year after a good season.

Was there, was fun, and it looked crowded compared to a normal weeknight game that I've been to. A lot of walk-up buyers crowding up the booth before the game. Still seemed to be about 30-40% Teddy's fans from Chitown, which needs to change. Let's get some weekend sellouts going.

Doesn't it always look like more? I think it is because our stadium is built so small. 26,000 leaves room for 16,000 fans. Say half the upper deck is full, that seems LIKE A LOT of people, but it probably has about 8,000 seats empty (just guessing on numbers). Then lower foul lines are usually rather empty and those are a lot of seats too. who knows. maybe there is a whole in the fence that 10,000 came into without paying?

It actually wouldn't surprise me if the paid attendance was a bit deceiving for the amount of people that could have been in the stadium. There was a line a mile-and-a-half long for all the complimentary/will-call ticket windows, and those lines actually reminded me of the lines I dealt with as a kid at Kings Island on a Saturday afternoon. I'm not sure what was going on, but it looked like there were plenty of people waiting around trying to get free complimentary or will-call tickets.

The walk-up had to have been at least decent because all the $5 seats sold out by the time I got there, and we had to buy bleacher seats just to get into the yard for as cheap as possible.

Also, the stadium was considerably lively for a weekday night game. There were some Cubs fans there, but at least near where I was at down in left field their presence wasn't known verbally like it has been in the past. Whenever the Cubs fans in those sections tried to start a Cubbies chant, the Reds fans surrounding them drowned them out with a Redlegs chant.

All things considered, the paid attendance was a hair over 26k, but my guess on actual people in the stadium would probably be closer to 30k. Considering it's a Thursday night game in early June for a team that hasn't had a great full season in seven years, that's not too bad.

I live in Zanesville, about 162 miles away from Cincinnati. I've been to two games this year(Marlins), and will be making the trip down to see the game on Saturday, with 3 friends. If we can make the voyage, then people within 20 miles, or who live in the city of Cincinnati have no excuse not to be there in my opinion.

There better be anyway....

Tonight there will probably be about 30,000. People just need to accept that Cincy isn't a baseball town anymore. I love the Reds, but if you go around town people still talk more about the thug Bengals more than the Reds. Maybe at one point this was a good baseball town, but now, it's in the bottom 5 in the entire league.

It might not be what it once was (years of losing will do that) but it's far from bottom five.

That attendance is disappointing. It's nice that it's gone up, it's nice that the people there were into the game--but even by the best counts there were 12-14,000 empty seats there. No school, no prom, no soccer tournaments, no farmer's markets--what's the excuse this time? yeah, the Reds have sucked wind the last five seasons, but if you don't come out and support the team when they're on a roll like this, when DO you come out? :confused:

im sorry, but in a "Baseball Town" more than 26K(not even all of which were reds fans) show up no matter how the team is doing, but especially when they are in first. the avg fan is what should push you to sell outs

That's the only thing to miss about him. I didn't renew my season tix last year because I knew I would be able to go 15-25 times for free and sit just about wherever I wanted. (And I mean free... wait till 6 PM and park on the street downtown.) This year I bit the bullet and bought them again. Glad I did.

I guess Cleveland just became a great baseball town post 95?

This is such a dumb arguement. Great baseball cities are not based solely on attendance. Many variables are factors in attendance in certain cities.

Fans showing up is the only thing you can base it on, it's not like you can judge a town's baseball IQ. And Houston sells out all the time, Philly kills us in atten., Seattle has since Griffey came up, Texas has since they got their new stadium, Cleveland has since 95 (and I'm talking about baseball town's now, not in 1975). I have no doubt this was once a great baseball town, but it's not anymore, and hasn't been in a long time.

You can't base it on attendance or anything else. I don't see the point in even debating it. A great baseball city is a city with a good owner, a good team, and good weather.

Also could factor in the city's size, stadium, and the type of city in terms of population spread.
