John Fay and Trent Rosencrans have the pertinent information on the upcoming sale (or non-sale) of Opening Day tickets for the Reds. Suffice to say that I’m not impressed.

I’ve been to the last three Opening Days, but that streak may be in jeopardy.

UPDATE: Here’s the official Reds release:

This Saturday is the last chance to guarantee an Opening Day ticket when purchasing a season-ticket plan. From 9 a.m.-1 p.m. ET, fans can come to Great American Ball Park to select their seats. Fans that purchase a season-ticket plan will also receive two free vouchers to the Reds’ Hall of Fame and Museum. Fans can also purchase season tickets on this day at

The next chance at Opening Day tickets will come through the “Power Pack Sale” on Saturday, March 3, and exclusively on Fans can purchase 11-game ticket packages that include the first three games of the season, all five fireworks nights and the June 8-10 Interleague series against the Indians.

“Power Pack” ticket prices range from $92-$257 per ticket package. Online service charges also apply.

    I’ve been to the last 5 and that streak will come to an end.

    Also, I believe it mentions that if there are any tix left over after the power pack sale, the remaining tix will be given to people via a lottery through their email.

    😀 I am a 49 year old that is on the opposite side of the opening day story. I have never been to openingday because of the old system, I didn’t have the time during the day to get tickets before they sold out. So I signed up for the lottery and was fortunate enough to get the chance and now will be going to Opening Day for the first time with my son. Good system for me..
