I have a hunch this may continue for many travelers who have driven the 3 hour or more trip to catch a few games during the year in the past....o well, I guess first place may be worth it!
I wonder if the Reds might consider looking into some buses for games from major areas. Do other teams have something like that. For example, maybe you start in Lima or Findlay and come down I-75 with stops at a few places. Same for the other corridors.
I know Cincinnati Metro used to run specials to the ballpark from various shopping areas.
