MyReds not be confused with MySpace

The Reds announced a new program to help season-ticket holders resell tickets, or at least that's what I think it is. Sounds like some good tickets will available for resale. Here's the release from the club:

CINCINNATI - The Cincinnati Reds have launched a new interactive platform called MyReds that gives season ticket holders more control and benefits to their accounts. As part of the MyReds rollout, the club also is introducing Reds Replay, a secondary ticketing platform that allows any fan to purchase tickets posted by full season ticket holders.

Season ticket holders who take advantage of this secure online program will be able to view a list of all their tickets, update account information and to share electronically tickets with friends, family, colleagues and others. Full season tickets holders will have to ability to sell their own tickets to other Reds fans.

“The Reds are delighted to offer this new technology,” said Reds chief operating officer John Allen. “MyReds provides increased value and ease of use for season ticket holders, and Reds Replay creates a convenient, secondary purchase method for all Reds fans. Fans buying through Reds Replay can be certain they are getting a valid game ticket.”

All Reds Replay transactions use electronic ticketing, eliminating the need for mailing or delivering hard tickets. Tickets are delivered via “print at home” technology or may be picked up at the ticket kiosks at Great American Ball Park in advance of or on game day.

The MyReds and Reds Replay programs are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week on reds.com and are sanctioned by the Reds. For more information, contact the MyReds telephone hotline at (513) 765-7300 or email myreds@reds.com.

I'm not a season ticket holder, and I don't play one on tv, but that seems like a really good idea. Here's hoping the front office will make good on-field decisions as well this season

The Reds get to sell a ticket once, then take a nice percentage when it's sold again. Wish I could do that.

If "MyReds" is anything like the other teams' programs (which have been operating for 2-3 years already), ticket-holders won't be able to sell their seats for below face value.

Sounds an awful lot like what we have here in Arizona... Of course, my boss has sweet seats, so instead of buying them I nab them before he can post them for sale. See ya April 9, 10 & 11! Go Reds!
