BIG RED MACHINE: In Cincinnati, John Fay notes the Reds "are on pace to draw" 127,078 more fans than last year. At $25 a ticket, that "would add $3.2 million to [the] bottom line." The Reds "are now on pace to draw 2,340,576 overall," which would "fall just short of breaking the Great American Ball Park record" of 2,355,259 set in the venue's inaugural season of '03. Reds' attendance has "built steadily since bottoming out" at 1,747,919 in '09. The team's '10 attendance was 2,060,550, then 2,213,498 last year (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 7/19).
