What You'll Get
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 $6, you get two general-admission tickets (up to a $12 value) to any of the Auburn Doubledays’ 2011 regular-season games.
In their inaugural year as the Short-Season A affiliate of the Washington Nationals, the Doubledays swing lumber, flash leather, and fling heaters under the lights of Falcon Park from June 18 until September 2. From the camaraderie-packed confines of general-admission seats, fans join cheering spectators at any of the Doubledays' 2011 games, including promotional dates and events such as post-game fireworks, $1 Thursdays, and Take Your Catcher to Work Day. Replete with a new roster and skipper, the club gears up to emulate the champagne-showered success of the 2007 squad, which captured the New York–Penn League championship after winning its division for the sixth straight year.
In addition to an evening of sporting cheer and bouts against hated divisional rivals, minor-league baseball lets fans glimpse the future of the big leagues without stealing Ouija boards from unsuspecting batboys. Accomplished Auburn alumni include past and present MLB stars such Johan Santana, Roy Oswalt, Kenny Lofton, and Luis Gonzalez.
Falcon Park offers its own deals for certain games that may be better values than this Groupon; check the promotion schedule and plan ahead to make sure to redeem your Groupon at the most opportune time.
