Reds to offer fans one dollar hot dogs in celebration of attendance

What's better than watching a Reds game at Great American Ball Park?

Watching a Reds game at Great American Ball Park while enjoying a hot dog that you only paid one dollar for. That's what.

The Reds have announced they will hold a "Dollar Hot Dog Night" in celebration of record-setting fan support. The event will take place next Thursday (Sept. 5) during Cincinnati's series finale against the St. Louis Cardinals.

"We are thanking the fans for getting us to $2 million tickets sold faster than any year in the history of this ballpark with a dollar dog night," said Reds COO Phil Castellini. "If this support continues, we're on pace to break the ballpark attendance record set in 2003."

Fans can get their hands on these $1 hot dogs from all concessions stands and from all vendors around the stadium. Condiments will also be available free of charge.

The promotion was sparked by record-breaking fan attendance. According to the team, total attendance for 2013 through 64 home games was 2,021,220. If the trend continues, the Reds will smash GABP's single-season attendance record of 2,355,259 set in the stadium's inaugural season in 2003.
