From John Fay:
http://cincinnati.com/blogs/reds/201...-cards-series/The Reds project crowds of 37,000-plus for the Monday-Tuesday games and 35,000-plus for the Wednesday game vs. St. Louis next week at Great American Ball Park, Reds senior vice president of business operations Karen Forgus said.
The Monday and Tuesday games start at 7:10 p.m., the Wednesday game at 12:35 p.m.
We are expecting a playoff atmosphere and a lot of excitement, Forgus said.
Forgus said ticket sales for the games are running 30 to 50 percent above normal for a typical August weekday series. Typical crowds for August weekday series would be in the middle to upper 20,000s, Forgus said.
If the Reds fare well this weekend in Chicago, that should also boost crowds for the St. Louis series. Regardless, sellouts or near-sellouts seem certain.
