controlling tick label size

Trying to find a simple way to shrink the tick labels for this plot -
since I can have many tiny histograms, the labels need to be smaller,
but it isn't obvious to me how to simply shrink them.

code snippet...

num = len(datasets)
fig = plt.figure()
rows = np.int(np.sqrt(num))
cols = np.int(float(num)/float(rows)+.9)
for i in range(num):
    ax = fig.add_subplot(rows, cols, i+1)
    ax.hist(datasets[i][np.isfinite(datasets[i])], bins=60 )
    ax.set_xlabel(labels[i], size = 9)
    ax.set_ylabel('Counts', size = 9)
plt.show()

Never mind - I just saw the very timely e-mail from Jouni.

Thanks!
