    Need to remember that you cannot bring food or drink into the ballpark (unlike GABP). If going to a Saturday or Sunday game I just stop off around Dayton Mall and eat at a restaurant. Though, IMHO, the food is much better at 5/3 than at GABP, so if you're hungry, spurge.

    Actually, I just turned on a boombox here at home and both sound about the same with lots of static. Will try tomorrow going home from work.

    I can get 980 all the way down near Milford pretty clear in the morning. Seems like in the afternoons it take me up to the Loveland area before it really comes in, though some times I can getting it leaving work.

    1410 usually only gets me thru about Lebanon on the drive to work, but since its programming is often the same as 1530, if there's something on Mike & Mike worth listening to, I just flip over, otherwise I got to 500.

    WONE 980 AM and WING 1410 AM go to a directional signal at sundown and the signal gets much weaker in most areas when they make the switch. The daytime signal, which is utilized until around 9:00 p.m. in the middle of summer (but only until 6:00 right now), is a good signal. WONE's daytime signal does get to more places than WING's did.

    Here are some links to signal strength maps for the stations and you can find your location. If you are inside the red circle, you are going to get a good signal. If you are inside the pink circle, you still might get a listenable signal.

    Also note that all games are streamed via the internet. I should also note that if you live in the Springfield area, the games are carried there on WIZE AM.

    One last suggestion that some may know and some may not. When trying to pick up any AM radio station, remember that the AM antenna is inside the unit. If you have a telescoping antenna on your boombox, that is only going to help with FM stations. It will not effect the radio's ability to pick up AM stations. To get better reception of AM stations, turn the radio itself and you will hear a noticable change in the sound clarity. To those of us who are old enough to remember when AM was king who spent time as kids trying to pick up baseball games off stations in Detroit, St. Louis, or Chicago, we have all tried this. To a younger audience, it may be something you have never worried about.

Anyway, this season we'll probably make our first trip up to Dayton, as its really no farther for us than Cincy (we're in Oxford). So, any tips on where to sit, etc.? Any players to watch- I know Hamilton will be there, LaMarre- Is H-Rod there yet?

    Yes its still a bit of a ways off before tickets and such, but I just thought about it, and baseball season is close enough.

    Redsfna320, enjoy the games and cherish the time with your dad. My pops introduced me to the game and got me hooked. Sadly, the strike and other life events have made him sort of bitter towards the game (more sports in general) and he doesnt like to go much anymore. By the way, ?320?, an hour early?

    I do cherish it, bounty. Good "male bonding" experience.

    Well some consider 4:20 a magical moment (I'm not sure why, anyone care to explain the significance of 4:20 vs say 4:30?).

    4:20 is a good time to light up the marijuna.
