Yep, they still have the $5 tickets. That is usually my ticket of choice when going to the park. We like to buy the $5 tickets and make our way into an open area in the 500's sections behind home plate. It's up pretty high, but you can see the whole field with a great view of the river (which I love peering out at in between innings and pitches).
More and more though they are becoming tougher to purchase at the windows. A lot of times they say they are sold out of them. I guess more people are starting to use this strategy so you might want to consider buying them in advance. The next cheapest are the bleachers at $10 then the 500's behind home plate for $13.
