Opening Day tickets

No, I don't have any to give away. But the Reds are close to announcing details of the procedure for this year.

The big change: No Opening Day tickets will be available at Great American Ball Park when single-game tickets go on sale. The club will begin selling Power Packs, probably 11-game Power Packs, March 3. Those packages include Opening Day tickets. If all those sell, no Opening Day tickets will be available. If all the Power Packs don't sell, the remaining Opening Day tickets will be sold in an online sweepstakes.

I talked to the Reds and was told the following about power packs. It will include the 1st 3 games against the cubs (2007 National City Magnetic Schedule Night), 5/25 against the Pirates (fireworks night and Pepsi College Nights/Pepsi Teen Nights), the Cleveland series (FSN Ohio Cap Night and Kroger Grocery Day), 6/29 against the cards, 7/3 against Giants (fireworks night), 7/27 against Cubs (fireworks night and 2007 WSL Stadium Power Tour)and 8/24 against Marlins (fireworks night).

That is 11 games. Includes 2 full series. Over half are division rivals.

I wish they would allow me to pick the games for a larger group of games. I could have done the flex plans but 20 games/vouchers is more than I wanted.

I don't really have that much interest in seeing the cubs that many times. It would have been nice had they picked 10 games vs 10 different opponents.

Any idea on price for the 'Power Pack'?

I'm told Power Packs will be available starting at $92. Prices vary depending on where the seats are. The Reds are going to announce the deatails later today.

The "Power Packs" idea of an entire series is absolutely absurd. For regional fans like me, who drives from Indianapolis, forcing us to get a hotel or make long trips back and forth is not attractive at all and is opposite what other teams do with these sorts of plans.

An 11 or 12 game plan with a game from each series would have worked out great for far more people, even the locals, I would think.

Just who's genius idea was such a contraption?
