After attending season after season, it's as easy to imagine 15,000 empty seats but just looking around during most games, even when we were on top of the division last year. For some reason, people don't come to see the Reds to the tune of 30,000 plus per game. They see to come out to see the other team, which drives our local attendance for limited games. Sad, but I hope the new stadium turns all that around.
I'd love more people to get out and see a game, and do hope they get 2.3 to 2.6 million.
Having two spring training exhibition games may not count toward regular season sales, but was a great move by the Reds to generate more ticket revenue.
