The Reds will become the latest MLB team to implement dynamic pricing for single-game ticket sales. Currently more than half of the 30 MLB teams are utilizing dynamic pricing.

By using advanced computer programming, dynamic pricing makes adjustments based on factors such as day of the week, month, team performance, visiting team's performance, weather forecast and remaining ticket inventory in specific seating sections.  

"After watching and studying industry pricing strategies over the last few years we decided to implement dynamic pricing for the 2013 season," said Reds COO Phil Castellini.

When single game tickets go on sale March 2, single game prices for 2013 will be at or below 2012 prices for 63% of games in most seating sections.

$5 Outer View Level tickets will be available for 64 of the 81 regular season home games when single game tickets go on sale. 

The Reds' popular season-long ticket offers such as Sunday Family Days, Senior Citizen Specials and 4 for $48 weekend deals will continue in 2013.

The Reds ensure that single-game ticket prices will never be lower than the prices offered to season ticket holders. 

It's not too late to lock in 2013 ticket plans, which include the Chapman Pick-6 Plan and 10-game Power Pack. Fans also can enjoy the full benefits of being a season ticket holder with the 13-game Baker's Dozen, 20-game, half and full season ticket packages.
