Much like the New Deal, free refills, and ownership of the moon, baseball helped make America the great nation it is today. Salute our national pastime with today's Groupon: for $16, you get a Charlotte Knights baseball outing for two with one regular cotton candy at Knights Stadium in Fort Mill (a $34 value). This Groupon is valid for the 7:15 p.m. game against the Norfolk Tides on Friday, August 12, or the 7:15 p.m. game against the Gwinnett Braves on Friday, September 2. Pick up two field-box seats from the box office on the day of the game selected.
A Triple-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox, the Charlotte Knights develop budding professional ballplayers and earn devout Knights fans in their home—the 10,002-seat Knights Stadium. The Knights have a storied history and an impressive list of orb-striking alumni, including Cal Ripken Jr., Manny Ramirez, and Jon Garland. Visitors take home free giveaways during Friday-night promotions, and mascot Homer the Dragon roams the stadium on his four-wheeler, tossing T-shirts, bopping people with his tail, and advocating for anthropomorphized-dragon civil liberties.
Between base thievery, guests feast on complimentary cotton candy. They can also order à la carte from the full-service menu at the fourth-floor Budweiser Brewhouse, with panoramic views of the field. Though not included in today's Groupon, parking for automobiles and hovercrafts is available for $4.
