Attendance is up

By the way, the Reds are ahead of last year's pace now. They've drawn 521,190 or an average of 22,660 through 23 dates. Last year, they had drawn 516,629 or 22,462 through 23 dates.

Must be because of The Crawl to 600.

The Marlins series didn't help attendance at GABP but the Indians series certainly did.

needs an asterisk, home series vs. cleveland wasn't until july last year...however, the home series vs boston should help them come close to last year's numbers when all is said and done...i suspect the park will be full of long-suffering (2003) red sox fans and those drunken louts will have their pink red sox hat wearing skanks in tow come the ides of june

The difference is that last year and the year before the Cleveland series was later in the year.
Let's see what Boston does to attendance, because the Privates and the Braves aren't gonna pack 'em in.

See John... everything averages out. i mean at the end of the year odds are likely that it will be similar to the previous year...

that was cheap.. i hope the redlegs can keep it up. Penny has been struggling ... 15 runs or so in the last 10 innings... good b/c our bats seem to be warming up!

"The Marlins series didn't help attendance at GABP but the Indians series certainly did."

In the battle for Ohio you get at least 10000 Indians fans, the Marlins dont even draw 10000 at home, much less bring them on the road.

Last Thursday someone from the Reds front office was on Sports Talk and mentioned that advance ticket sales for '08 were running well ahead of advance sales for '07at the same point in time. The Reds think they're going to pass 2.2 million this year.
