Reds set new single-season attendance mark

Though the Reds suffered a devastating loss on Wednesday, fans still had something to celebrate.

With a crowd of 26,223 on hand to watch a 1-0 loss to the Mets, the Reds set a new single-season attendance record at Great American Ball Park, drawing a total of 2,371,103 fans in 2013. That broke the previous mark of 2,355,259, set in the stadium's inaugural season in 2003.

"We are very grateful to our fans for attending in record-breaking numbers," Reds chief operating officer Phil Castellini said in a statement. "And we are anxious to see how much we can grow the final attendance number by packing the park for all three games of the Pirates series this weekend to finish the regular season."

As a personal thank you, members of the Reds' front office were positioned at the gates following Wednesday's game to show their gratitude to fans for helping to break the record.
