Babe Ruth was nicknamed "The Colossus of Trout" because his skills on the field derived from summers spent fishing the old-fashioned way––with a baseball bat and shallow water. Earn an epithet of your own with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two field-box tickets to the home opener for the New Britain Rock Cats, as they play the Portland Sea Dogs at New Britain Stadium on Thursday, April 14 at 6:05 p.m.
As the Double-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, the Rock Cats will battle their EAS Eastern League rivals and Boston Red Sox affiliate Portland Sea Dogs for bragging rights during their season home opener at New Britain Stadium. Watch from the field-box seats as the Rock Cats send baseballs flying into oblivion far past the outstretched hands of outfielders and opposing players posing in the stands as hot-dog vendors. Rock Cats' mascots Rocky and his nephew Rookie pump up the crowd with spirited dancing and by keeping wide smiles plastered on their faces throughout the whole game.
