Just like flying squirrels, baseball players are adept at gliding across grassy fields, munching on seeds, and dodging bats in midair. Witness this acrobatic species in its natural habitat with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get two tickets for Harbor Club seating at a Bridgeport Bluefish home game (a $40 value). This deal is valid for any game from this year's schedule, which begins April 29, and ends September 11, 2011.
A charter team in the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, the Bridgeport Bluefish have been chalking up victories at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard for years, finishing the second half of the 2010 season in first place in their division. Watch the Bluefish go cap to cap with division rivals such as the Camden Riversharks from the comfort of the premier Harbor Club section, which inhabits the suite level of the ballpark directly above home plate. Fans there enjoy easy access to a full-service bar, food options, and the umpire's conscience. The Harbor Club section has both outdoor seats and climate-controlled indoor seating featuring flat-screen televisions.
Mascot B.B. the Bluefish's between-innings shenanigans keep things lively, and promotions and giveaways show the team's gratitude more effectively than having ticket takers scream "thanks!" in each fan's face. Tickets will be available for pick-up at the main box office. The club recommends that guests claim their seats at least one day prior to the game.
In 2012, the Bluefish became the first team in Atlantic League history to reach 1,000 victories. It was a huge milestone for a franchise that today, stands as one of only two remaining charter teams throughout the entire league. The 'Fish initially brought baseball back to Park City in 1998, and advanced to the league championship series in a losing effort. A year later, though, they returned with their first league title after defeating the Somerset Patriots.
The team's early success established a winning tradition–in fact, the Bluefish didn't suffer their first losing season until their eighth year of existence. Winning hasn't been the only tradition in Bridgeport, however. The Bluefish battle the Long Island Ducks every season for the Ferry Cup, trying to establish regional supremacy on the baseball diamond instead of by firing a barrage of used baseballs across the Long Island Sound.
