Seat view from section 126 at Great American Ball Park, home of the Cincinnati Reds

Good view in a good ballpark. Behind home plate, only further back. The view level seats are the only seats I would avoid at Reds games. Everywhere else is a pretty safe bet for a good view and fun time.
If you haven't been back since 'The Banks' outside of the ballpark has been built, you have to visit. Tons of bars, restaurants, shopping. Before The Banks, there was absolutely nothing to do before or after; it's all on the former site of Riverfront Stadium/Cinergy Field.
Holy Grail and Tin Roof seem to be the most happening places. Lots of drinking!

Very overrated section in an average ballpark. Don't get me wrong, I love my Reds but I've seen 11 MLB ballparks and Great American is at the bottom. (PNC Park is phenomenal).
Anyway, 126 is a small section in a string of sections behind home plate called 'Scout Seats'. They sit behind the Diamond seats and have that name because it's a designated area for Major League Baseball scouts to sit. For every game, there may be only 3 or 4 scouts in attendance and they all sit in sections 22-25, not in the 120s.

Not that it matters. I don't see what the big deal is; the scouts aren't there for conversation. The seats are a little wider than the normal seats at the ballpark so they get credit for that and the Scouts Alley concession area is nice.
Tickets at face value are in the $60-$80 range for this area. Not worth it so don't do it.
