Any advise would be appreciated.
That is what it is and what it will be. Especially given the opponent (well, Josh Hamilton return) and the high expectations for the Reds this year, Opening Day will be bigger than ever and tougher than ever to get a ticket for.
I'd scour stubhub, ebay, and craigslist (you can actually get decent tix on craigslist). But you will still be looking at a crazy overpay for not great seats.
Fwiw, you should consider doing the Opening Day parade and festivities together and then send family to do other activity (or take son with you and pay for ladies to do more lady type things). Unless the wife and daughter REALLY love baseball, might be better to save the money for Opening Night where you guys can all sit in great seats for normal prices. I have gotten single field box seats for under $80 each of the last 2 yrs off stubhub, and then took the family to another game later in the series.
