Probably not the right spot for this question, but I didn't know if it warranted it's own thread, does any one know when single game tickets (Opening Day tickets) go on sale? I hope to make it to my third Opening Day in a row.

3 months from today is Opening Day Eve.

35 more days 'til pitchers/catchers report.
I believe yesterday was 79 days away from Opening Day, and the Reds actually have a player with that uniform number, so here we go:

I believe today means we're 77 days away from Opening Day. Both Mariano Duncan (worn in 1995 because Darren Lewis had Duncan's old #7) and Ben Weber (who pitched his last 10 games as a Red in 2005) have had the honor of wearing #77.

72: Curtis Goodwin? I don't remember what his number was before 00, but I know he wore 00.

71: Juan Cerros - Did he ever pitch for the Reds? Don't remember, but I remember him getting drafted and then lost in the draft.

70: Stephan Larkin - with a lifetime .333 BA, higher than his brother's. lol

Curtis Goodwin wore 7 until Kevin Mitchell returned. Then he briefly wore 77 before switching to 00. I don't remember him ever wearing 72.

A good choice for 72 would have been Mike Stefanski.

Juan Cerros briefly pitched for the Reds in 2003.

Can't tell if this is sarcasm or not, but in case it's not from left to right that's Boonie, Juan Castro (#7) and Adam Dunn.

Fred's brother Bill was a doctor who started the center in his brother's honor.
