It’s fun to see star athletes play in college before they sign lucrative contracts to go pro or become stuck inside statues of themselves near the campus stadium. Witness the making of a legacy with this GrouponLive deal to see the Metropolitan Lacrosse Classic, presented by Konica Minolta, at Citi Field on Sunday, March 17. The Holy Cross vs. Navy match starts at noon, followed by Michigan vs. Colgate at 3 p.m. Choose from the following options:

- $24 for one ticket for Field Sideline VIP seating (a $47 value, including all fees)
For the first time ever, lacrosse invades Citi Field during the inaugural Metropolitan Lacrosse Classic on March 17. The doubleheader begins with a matchup between a pair of Patriot League rivals, including the US Naval Academy, a program that has produced 429 All-Americans and one Captain America. Junior attackman Tucker Hull leads Navy against the College of the Holy Cross and its star senior James Kennedy.
In the second half of the doubleheader, Colgate University stomps onto the turf behind attackman Peter Baum. Recently picked first overall in the Major League Lacrosse draft, Baum won the 2012 Tewaaraton Award for top male player in collegiate lacrosse while setting the Patriot League record for goals. He’ll have to fight through the defense and autograph requests of a tough Wolverine team, as the University of Michigan sets out on its second season of varsity lacrosse after winning three straight National Club team titles from 2008–10.
