The Cincinnati Reds are a team that has not only been around for over 100 years and was the
first professional baseball franchise in the United States, but also is a team that has a tradition
of winning. The Reds have won five World Series Championships and nine
National League Pennants. Besides the fact that the Reds have won the eighth most World
Series titles, they also are known to have some of the greatest players in the games’ history
on their roster. The Cincinnati Reds ticket sales soared through the roof when
they had players such as Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, Ken Griffey Jr, and Barry Larkin among other
greats. Over the past 27 years, Cincinnati Reds ticket sales have averaged an attendance of
over 20,000 fans per game as they moved into two different ball parks over those years.
The greatest jump in Reds Ticket sales in their history occurred during the era of the “Big Red
Machine” (1970-1976). Prior to the 1970 season, the Cincinnati Reds ticket sales were routinely
under 1 million tickets sold over the period of one season. In 1970 however, there were a total
of 1.8 million Reds tickets sold, and an even more impressive 2.6 million tickets sold in the last
year of the Big Red Machine Era. The most important players on that Big Red Machine team
were Rose, Bench, and Joe Morgan, all of whom helped the Cincinnati Reds
ticket sales increase and lead the National League in ticket sales in 1976.
The Cincinnati Reds currently play at Great American Ball Park located on the winding
banks of the Ohio River in Cincinnati. Built in only 2002, The Great American Ballpark is still
considered a new park in great shape with many attractions for their fans. One of the most
unique things to the Reds ballpark is that it has its own Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and
Museum which is attached to the ballpark that you can purchase tickets to and explore the
museum and then head over to the ballpark to watch a game that very same day.
