MLB Teams 'Wind Up' With Season Promotions

Several Major League teams are offering discounts this year to bolster attendance during the recession. Here's a look at some of the promotions.

BALTIMORE ORIOLES: Children 10 and under can enter free when accompanied by an adult at Thursday night games. The offer is good for two children per adult.

CINCINNATI REDS: Students in grades 7-12 with an A average get two free View Level seats, which typically cost $14. Friends and family can purchase additional View Level tickets at half-price for the same game.

LOS ANGELES DODGERS: Fans can catch fly balls and visit Autograph Alley for a signature from a Dodger legend at no additional cost.

MINNESOTA TWINS: Tickets will be sold for a section of the stadium called the "Home Run Porch" based on the Dow Jones Industrial Average at the close of business Friday. For example, if the Dow closes the week at 7,481, the ticket price for any Monday game will be $7.48 if purchased the following week.

PITTSBURGH PIRATES: On April 15, fans can buy $1 seats, $1 hot dogs, $1 12-ounce soda and $1 popcorn.
