Baseball remains the national pastime, despite recent challenges from upstart pastimes like warming up bagel bites and discreetly googling hernia symptoms at work. Spectate the sport of sportsmen with today’s Groupon. For $15, you get a family four-pack of box-seat tickets to a Carolina Mudcats baseball game (up to a $40 value). A minor-league affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds, the Mudcats play at Five County Stadium, located in Zebulon. This Groupon is good for games on Sunday through Thursday.
Celebrating their 20th anniversary of swatting baseballs, the Mudcats kick off their regular season's first home series on April 14 against the Montgomery Biscuits, followed by another home series against the Tennessee Smokies. With MLB veterans David Bell and Ryan Jackson returning as manager and hitting coach, respectively, the Mudcats are poised to make another run at the AA Southern League title. Featuring the hilarious on-field shenanigans of Muddy the Mudcat, the team provides excellent entertainment value for families and Elvis-impersonator groups.
Water-polo players suffer from bone-chilling wintertime practices, eye poking, and a constant barrage of annoying face splashing. Instead, check out our nation’s pastime for a thrilling flurry of bat-whiffing curveballs, leisurely home-run strolls around the bases, dusty headfirst slides, and base stealing followed by on-field theft litigation. Call ahead to redeem your Groupon.
- Some of the between inning games included an egg race, a 3 legged race (with underwear), and of course, race the mascot (Muddy). The ballpark has two large scoreboards, both of which track the linescore. There is also a large video board which is quite sharp. – Ballpark Reviews
