Reds to sell 1,500 Opening Day tickets on Saturday

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The Reds announced Monday that 1,500 tickets to the April 1 Opening Day game vs. the Angels will go on sale at 9 a.m. ET on Saturday. The tickets are only available at the Great American Ball Park box office window.

The available tickets for the 4:10 p.m. game are limited to 1,000 view level at $32 each and 500 standing room only at $20 each. There is a limit of four tickets per person. Last year in a similar sale, tickets sold out in less than one hour.

Because of construction on Crosley Terrace, fans looking to get a head start to the front of the line will not be permitted to wait before 9 a.m. on Friday.
