Interesting, and not surprising given last season’s success:

Phil Castellini, the Reds COO, said season-ticket sales are up.

“Both renewals and new ticket sales are up significantly,” he said. “We’ll have a better number when we get closer to Opening Day. But I’d say both are up at least 10 percent. You’d like them to be up 100 percent. But we’re still fighting a tough economy.”

Keep buying those tickets, Reds fans. I’d love to see a real home field advantage, for the first time in years.
