Former Cincinnati Red owner and well-known intellectual Marge Schott is suing the current Red ownership over her seats at their new stadium, the ambitiously named Great American Ball Park (at least it's better than the new Comiskey name). Evidently, the four-year-old deal ensured that the Cincinnati and the Reds would have to endure her presence at games indefinitely, no matter where they are played.
Schott's lawsuit says she had use of a private box at the Reds' old stadium, Cinergy Field, and 21 blue-level seats that were grouped together and near the playing field. But in the new ballpark, the seats allocated to Schott are scattered about the stadium and are at the back of the premium section.
The Reds say she is entitled to use of the owners' suite but is asking for benefits not included in the sale agreement. The team says the benefits would be greater than those afforded to any other Reds owner.
