When the Reds return and the Padres come to visit, Mr. Castellini is once again going with the half-price tickets and $1 hotdogs to fill the stadium.
If you want to see playoff baseball in Cincinnati for the first time in 11 years, get off your duffs and get to the park for that series and do what you can to help the team win.
Speaking of–sitting in section 533 yesterday, we had a guy yelling at the top of his lungs all game, and I am pretty sure that the players could hear him because the rest of the stadium was so quiet. He didn’t yell anything profane or outrageous and he didn’t boo. He just implored his Reds to perform as best he could, and the rest of us in the section got a kick out of him. As fans, we can–and should–be more like this guy with the playoff races in full throttle.
