"It is gratifying to see the excitement for Double A baseball in our area. To have sold 500 tickets prior to any sales campaign is remarkable.

Additional benefits include the same great seat for all 70 home games, the ability to lock in low 2012 pricing for up to three years, season ticket holder only events and gifts, 10% off merchandise in the team store, inclusion in the "Never Wasted Ticket" program and guaranteed giveaway items on game days. Also, 2012 season ticket holders will receive a free game ticket and transportation to Mobile to see the future Pensacola baseball team play the Mobile BayBears on Friday, May 14, 2011.

The new home of the Reds' Double-A affiliate will be located at Maritime Park, the premier waterfront mixed use development on the Gulf Coast. The team will play the 2011 season in North Carolina before relocating to the new state-of-the-art facility starting in April of 2012.
