CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Fans formed lines with tents and sleeping bags on Friday to wait for the sale of Reds Opening Day ticket packages.

A limited number of tickets will go on sale Saturday at 9 a.m. at the Great American Ball Park ticket windows only as part of a two-game package.

The hardcore fans came prepared with chairs, coolers, blankets and more, knowing that last year's Opening Day packages sold out in less than one hour. Many campers on Crosley Terrace, said that waiting in this line was a fun family tradition they've done for years. 

As Opening Day is only 18 days away, workers finally removed the tarp off of the field today thanks to cooperating weather.
