Despite baseball's unofficial theme song, peanuts and cracker jack were replacements for the original, mid-1850s snacks of heavily salted licorice and wooden chewin' slabs. Discover other classic, but not too classic, baseball traditions with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a ticket to College Baseball's Night of Champions, hosted by the National College Baseball Hall of Fame at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center on Sunday, July 3, at 7:30 p.m. (a $10 value). Admission for children under 18 is already $5.

Every year, the museum inducts former college players and coaches into its pantheon of stellar veterans of the sport, including luminaries who went on to acclaimed professional careers such as Jackie Robinson, Branch Rickey, and Jim Abbott. The 2011 inductees, chosen by a committee of baseball experts who all claim to have invented the curve ball, include Terry Francona, a Golden Spikes award winner at Arizona and current general manager of the Boston Red Sox, and Dick Groat, former Duke shortstop, MVP of the National League, and member of the 1960 world-champion Pittsburgh Pirates.

The highlight of the induction ceremony is the presentation of the 2011 Dick Howser Trophy, awarded to this year's top national college baseball player. Recent winners, including Stephen Strasburg and Buster Posey, have gone on to acclaimed major-league debuts. The Hall of Fame ceremony is a great way to see future stars in person without the hassle of enrolling in their colleges and signing up for Fencing 204 at the same time as them.
