    What do you think of the Reds Home Game Start Times?

    The Reds start home games at the following times:

    All 45 weeknight games begin at 7:10 PM

    9 weekday games begin at 12:35 PM (1 Tuesday, 3 Wednesdays, 5 Thursdays)
    1 weekday game begins at 1:10 PM (Opening Day)

    10 Saturday games begin at 7:10 PM (May-September)
    3 Saturday games begin at 1:10 PM (April & October)

    All 13 Sunday home games begin at 1:10 PM


    Are these times too early? Too late?

    I'd prefer they start weeknight games at 7:12.

    My only complaint: I want one scheduled double header every year. My best memories of Reds games as a kid were going to double headers.

    They'd have to charge double ticket price, or clear the stadium after game one. can't lose that revenue, especially as a smaller market team.

    I would like to see some of the evening games start at 7.35 and a few of the day games start at 2.10 but overall I like the start times.

    Since I work second shift I prefer them playing on the West Coast at 10:00pm.. The only thing I don't like is 12:35 games. I think they should start at either noon or 1..

    I don't know how fans would like to be greeted by rush hour when they leave the ballpark around 5 PM. Right now the 12:35 games end at 3:30, just before the traffic downtown begins to get bad.

    Kansas City can get away with playing at 2:10 for weekday games because their stadium is in the suburbs and not right downtown. That would never fly in Cincy.

    As you can see above there is a lot of variety on Saturday nights. The Reds keep their start time the same at 7:10 PM while many other clubs choose to play earlier in the evening.

    Gotta give the talking heads 5-10 minutes to babble before the game starts.
