What does a 72-90 season mean for Reds fans? A $2 increase in many tickets.
Here's the official release:
CINCINNATI – The Cincinnati Reds today announced their full schedule, subject to change, and ticket prices for individual games at Great American Ball Park for the 2008 regular season.
The Reds' home schedule was released last month. Interleague road games are scheduled at New York's Yankee Stadium from June 20-22 (Fri-Sun), at Toronto's Rogers Centre from June 24-26 (Tue-Thu) and at Cleveland's Jacobs Field from June 27-29 (Fri-Sun).
The 2008 season will be the last for both New York stadiums. The Reds play their final series at Shea Stadium, home of the Mets, from May 9-11 (Fri-Sun). They will make their inaugural visit the Washington Nationals' new stadium, Nationals Park, from August 1-3 (Fri-Sun).
Ticket prices for most non-premium seating categories will increase $2, though the price of Bleacher Seats will drop to $7 from $10. There is no change in the price of a Terrace Outfield ticket ($19), while View Level seats will increase from $13 to $14.
Approximately 58 percent of the ballpark seats will be priced at $20 or less.
Premier Games pricing includes the Opening Day game against the Arizona Diamondbacks and the interleague series against the 2007 World Series champion Boston Red Sox (June 13-15). Select Games pricing includes games against the Cleveland Indians (May 16-18) and Chicago Cubs (September 5-7).

Season ticket packages renewed or purchased after January 31 will save up to 18 percent over 2008 individual ticket prices.
