I attended my third Reds game of the season last night. Kim emailed me around lunch time to see if I was interested in free tickets to the game from her employer. Immediately I said yes, and that was before I knew that the tickets were Scout Box Seats valued at over $75 each. Our seats were directly behind home plate, about ten rows up. The Scout Seats earned their name as these are the seats that Major League scouts occupy during games, in fact one was sitting in the seat next to me.
Included in the ticket price are a host of amenities, including in-seat food and beverage service, and access to Scouts Alley, a private lounge for scout box and scout seat holders only. In addition the seats are padded and two inches wider than the typical seats in the ballpark. I definitely have never been as comfortable or as close to a Major League game as I was last night.
And to top it all off, the Reds beat the Padres 7-6!
