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 $44, you get two terrace outfield tickets (a $44 value), two Reds caps (a $30 value), and two $6 vouchers toward a McDonald’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner Extra Value Meal (a $12 value) at a Cincinnati Reds game (an $86 total value). Each additional package consisting of one ticket, one cap, and one meal voucher may be purchased for $22.
In order to claim their tickets, fans will be redirected to the Cincinnati Reds' online ticketing site for Groupies, where they must choose their preferred game, pay additional fees (see below for details), and avoid hordes of flesh-eating ticket crickets.

As the current season chugs forward, the Reds are primed for a second consecutive run at the National League Central division title. The Reds are led by ball-mashing first baseman Joey Votto, who's getting on base like it's his job, because it is his job, so that's probably why, as well as crafty hurler Bronson Arroyo, who boasts a 3.68 ERA and 33 strikeouts after 44 innings pitched. Fans can 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 and Museum, and leap-boosting infield trampolines.
Terrace outfield seating offers ample opportunities to catch a souvenir, whether it's a home-runned ball or the ousted mascot of the opposing team. Fans can wind back while imitating big-league swings with their soda straws before trading their cumbersome salsa-bowl sombreros for sporty new Reds caps. Although there is no McDonald's location at the park, customers can use their voucher at the location of their choice within the Cincinnati area.
Note on ticketing fees: Customers will get the same percentage off the service charge, but they'll still need to pay the full processing fee, the optional printing-at-home fee, and tax. Ain't no discounts on tax.
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.
