Without the minors, major-league baseball would run out of players and sad songs would all sound like marching-band tunes. Cheer on today's youth and tomorrow's pros with this GrouponLive deal to see the Round Rock Express play at the Dell Diamond. Choose between the following options:
- $14 for four general-admission lawn seating tickets (a $24 value)
- $69 for nine reserved seating tickets (a $99 value)
A Triple-A affiliate of the 2010 and 2011 American League Champion Texas Rangers, Round Rock Express players bat, slide, steal, and knock spherical things out of the Dell Diamond. Managed by former Rangers outfielder Bobby Jones, the team receives its silent hand signals and coaching from former major-league player Spike Owen. As a member of the Pacific Coast League, the Express strive for control of the American Southern Division, playing rival clubs from Oklahoma City, Albuquerque, and New Orleans. Right fielder Joey Butler leads their offensive charge, aggravating fans of opposing teams with 60 runs and double-digit homers through 84 games this year. Since coming over from the Colorado Springs Sky Sox 21 games into the season, right fielder Ryan Spilborghs has maintained an impressive above-.310 batting average after playing 52 games with the Express. Throughout July and August, fans can enjoy Friday night fireworks and postgame concerts on select Saturdays after watching the human versions of their favorite bobbleheads.
