Reds Season Tickets
When I attended my final game of the 2009 season at Great American ballpark, I had thought that it would be the last time I would step inside of that ballpark for a long time. The gates didn’t open until 5:40, which was beyond frustrating, especially after driving all the way from Pittsburgh. I was planning to turn my road game attention to the Nationals and Orioles.
I was bored the other day, so I started looking around the various MLB sites at the perks that other teams give their season ticket holders.
When I was looking at the Reds’ benefits, this stood out to me:
That’s right, the Reds will be having an early entrance gate for season ticket holders only. It will be just like at PNC Park. Its basically like having the whole park to yourself for 30 minutes.
During the 2009 season, the Reds finished 27th in attendance, just ahead of the Pirates who were 28th. I can assume that the season ticket time will be about just as crowded as it is in Pittsburgh, which is to say, it won’t be.
I started to do some research. I looked exclusively at the Baker’s Dozen plan, which is a pack of 13 games. Its the smallest plan one can buy and still enjoy the benefits of being a season ticket holder.
I zeroed in on the Saturday plan:
Does this mean that the Nationals too will have 30 minutes for only season ticket holders, or is this just a special gate that opens so that the season ticket holders won’t have to wait in a line at 4:30 when the gates open?
Any advice would be appreciated.
