What You'll Get
Baseball enthusiasts can’t properly behold the glorious seventh-inning stretch in a crowded living room, because there’s always someone standing on the coffee table getting his forehead rhythmically slammed by the ceiling fan. Stretch and cheer in the ceilingless confines of today's deal: for $20, you get one lower-level field-box ticket (a $34 value) and a Reds cap (a $16 value) at a Cincinnati Reds game, a $50 total value. You’ll have your choice of three dates to see the Reds play the San Francisco Giants and there is no limit on Groupon purchases for this deal. See the Cincinnati Reds play the San Francisco Giants on one of the following dates:
- Monday, June 7, at 7:10 p.m.
- Tuesday, June 8, at 7:10 p.m.
- Wednesday, June 9, at 7:10 p.m.
In order to claim your tickets, you'll be redirected to the Cincinnati Reds' online ticketing site for Groupies, where will choose your preferred game, pay the additional fees (see below for more info), and avoid hoards of flesh-eating ticket crickets.
As the current season chugs forward, the Reds are primed for a run at the National League Central division title. The Reds are led by the ball-mashing first baseman Joey Votto, who is cranking 'em out of the park like it's his job, because it is his job, so that's probably why, as well as the crafty hurler Mike Leake, who started the year 4-0 with a sparkling 3.09 ERA. Fans will be able to experience dexterous outfield grabs without the use of massive fishing nets and deft base stealing that doesn’t set off tripwire booby traps in one of the nation’s finest bunting biospheres—Great American Ball Park. Built in 2003, the park boasts scenic riverside views, fireworks-spewing steamboat smokestacks, the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum, and leap-boosting infield trampolines.
Field-box seating offers some of the best seating in the park, providing clear views of on-deck hitters whittling bats from giant sunflower-seed shells and managers hand-signaling soap-opera updates to catchers. Additionally, the included Reds cap will showcase team loyalty while allowing fans to leave their cumbersome salsa-bowl sombreros at home. Simultaneously show your loyalty to the Big Red Machine and prepare for the oncoming summer relaxageddon by proudly sporting a Reds cap in the field box. Today’s Groupon lets you fist-pump along to powerful swings and grassy sprints without playing a round of golf with a peppy, sugar-propelled Arsenio Hall.
Note on ticketing fees: You'll get the same percentage off the convenience charge, but you'll still need to pay the full processing fee, the optional printing-at-home fee, and tax. Ain't no discounts on tax.

About Cincinnati Reds
The 1970s were a transformative time for the Cincinnati Reds. Over that decade, the Reds cast off the lingering shadows of controversy—the team's first NL Pennant and World Series title were overshadowed by the notorious "Black Sox" scandal—to become a dominant force in Major League Baseball. The Reds appeared in four Fall Classics during that stretch and won back-to-back titles in 1975 and 1976—the latter of which forever etched "The Big Red Machine" into baseball lore. Today, the Reds continue to build on their rich history at Great American Ball Park. There, fans can gaze the outfield walls and soak in views of the Ohio River and the hills of Northern Kentucky where Mr. Redlegs buys all of his mustache wax.
