Postponement forced some fans to exchange tickets for a later date

The Cincinnati Reds announced Thursday a limited number of tickets remain for the Opening Day game against the Washington Nationals on Friday. They can be purchased on Reds.com.

The 4:10 p.m. opener was postponed from Thursday to Friday on Wednesday because of inclement weather in the forecast.

There are tickets available in various seating sections. There are also standing-room only tickets available. These tickets became available when fans who planned to attend Thursday’s game exchanged their tickets for a game on a future date.

This was the first time Opening Day has been postponed because of weather by the Reds since 1966 when the first three games were postponed by rain. The 1996 opener was also postponed just seven pitches into the game when umpire John McSherry collapsed during the game and died.
