    Who gets to watch games on a regular basis in the minors?

    Who among REDSZONE members gets to watch live (not internet, the home games of the REDS' minor league teams?

    I just want to put names with locations. It's like having a scout at the games. You can see different things when you're at a game that you just can't catch on TV.

    I share season tickets for the Dragons with a group of co-workers. So I usually see at least 15 Dragons games a year.

    It seems there's a lot more first-hand knowledge than just Reds Fanatic around here, and a lot of that is probably seeing the REDS' minor league teams as they travel through your town, or your close inspection of their games and stories. I would think that there would be many of you from around Louisville and Dayton, and many more probably get to see them on TV.

    I watch Dragons games on TV here in Cincinnati and try to go to a few Dragons/Bats games a year but being that each is a nice little drive away it only happens so often. I am contemplating buying the Louisville Bats package to watch their home games online.

    Any Columbus zoners going to the Bats games at Cooper Stadium this weekend? They play Saturday and Monday night and Sunday and Tuesday afternoon. Doug, I know the Louisville rotation is screwed up right now but any idea who will be on the hill in those games? Last time Louisville played up here the only game I could go to was the one Jared Fernandez was starting...

    I try to go to about 7-10 Dragons games per year. Been on their waiting list forever...
