CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Reds today announced a continuation of the military ticket program in which they will provide active military personnel with complimentary tickets throughout the 2006 regular season.
Active military members with proper identification will receive complimentary View Level tickets, subject to availability, on day of game only for games played Monday through Thursday.
All ticket acquisitions must be made on the day of the game at the Advance Ticket Windows, located at Crosley Terrace at Great American Ball Park. Groups of 20 or more are requested to call the community relations office 21 business days in advance of desired game (513-765-7022).
