Cincinnati Reds offer residents discounted tickets for joining program

July 4, 2013 by  

Cincinnati residents now have a chance to watch their favorite baseball team at discounted prices, thanks to the Reds’ involvement with the city’s Summer Reading Days. The Cincinnati Library’s summer program brings people to the libraries, which are located throughout the city, by scheduling activities the whole family can enjoy.

Among these are scavenger hunts, where patrons are invited to find pictures hidden throughout the library as they learn trivia about different subjects; weekly changes of posters of villains, and heroes so library patrons can test themselves by identifying the characters; and weekly contests for teens to answer trivia questions about superheroes. The various branches have different activities scheduled.

The Reds are making it possible for fans to buy tickets to their games at a discount. The special rate is available to anyone who signs up for the reading program. They will receive a promotional code they can use to buy tickets to one of two games: the Reds vs. the Mariners on July 7; or the Reds vs. the Cardinals on August 4.

The Summer Reading Program is aimed at children under 18, and has already attracted more than 2,000 participants. In addition to getting a discount on Reds tickets, program participants can win prizes by keeping track of their reading online. Interested people can register via the library’s website, but must do so before July 20, when the program finishes.

The library could work with a poster printing service to create posters for display throughout the library system, encouraging patrons to buy Reds tickets as well as enjoying the summer.
