    What recession?

    This info taken from a column by ESPN's Jayson Stark.

    Through the first month of the season the Reds home attendance has actually gone up from last year.

    BIGGEST GAINERS
    Team This April Last April Diff.
    Marlins 23,663 12,632 +11,031
    Rays 28,986 18,867 +10,119
    Athletics 22,282 17,325 +4,957
    Phillies 41,713 38,420 +3,293
    Reds 21,460 19,750 +1,710

    Fifth in the league in attendance increase. Hopefully we can keep the above .500 record going and keep attendance up.

    Baseball will always be fine in Cincy. The radio in Tampa always complained that no one was showing up even after being in first almost the entire year. And as you can see after winning and winning some more, they finally got people in the seats.

    I attribute to the fans being excited about the young talent and just new hope. I think ownership has to know that.

    Still wish there weren't those stinker games like 9K turnouts.
    2009 Attendance Record: 3-5
    2010 Attendance Record: 2-9
    2011 Attendance Record: 3-4
    2012 Attendance Record: 3-4
    2013 Attendance Record: 5-2

    ^definately has to do with the young guys and the excitement/hope, and should be a sign to Cast and FO that the fans will come if it is worth coming for, and make a move if need be/available later in the season if things still rolling strong(er). To a degree, its make-or-break time (not neccesarily "right" now, but the season as it progresses. The fans are coming and supporting, but if they fallout and dont move, the hope and exzcitement we have found will go back in the crapper.
