Like Shakira, a fluid bat swing harnesses snappy hip movements, looks amazing, and catches the eye of every passing hot-dog vendor. Witness advanced swing physics with today’s Groupon. For $14, you get a Triple Play Package, which includes one 100-level, Field-Box-Seat ticket to three separate Durham Bulls baseball games, a $28.50 value. Split into April and May, June and July, and August and September, the Triple Play Package allows customers to attend one home game during each period (excluding Friday and Saturday games, and May 10 and July 4). Seats are first come, first served, and there is no limit on Groupon purchases.
Founded in 1902, when everyone walked uphill both ways, the Bulls have evolved into one of the country's best-known minor-league teams. Boasting a rich history and talented prospects making their way to the majors, the Bulls play in the 15-year-old Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Featuring a 10,000-seat capacity, comfy extra-wide seating, a new video board, and a sublime view of the bull perched atop the 32-foot Blue Monster in left field, the Durham Bulls Athletic Park is a superb place to witness the 2009 AAA National Champions run, hit, and skillfully communicate with a flurry of dexterous semaphore. Stocked with young talent, the Bulls will showcase several players in 2010 that are sure to soon end up on a major-league roster. Inspired by 23-year-old Desmond Jennings—who posted a .325 batting average and .419 on-base percentage last year—and 22-year-old, hard-throwing Jeremy Hellickson—who fanned 70 batters and walked only 15 in 57.1 innings—the Bulls are primed for another title run through an action-packed schedule this year.
There’s no better setting than a freshly cut field and a prim infield to experience dazzling dives, disastrous reliever meltdowns, and the heckling of grown men who gallivant grassy fields in tight pants. Thanks to the Bulls, spectators will experience thrilling displays of athleticism matched only by germaphobes using a toilet in Bratislava or a goldfish sharing an aquarium with a cybernetic piranha.
- From first-base line seats, you can relax and gulp down big beers, corn dogs and barbecue while taking in a perfect view of the Durham skyline. A smoke-breathing toro "Bull Durham" producers built to spice up the old park still proudly stands above the high left-field wall. – Contributor, Citysearch
- I'm not a huge baseball fan, but I had one of the best times at a Durham Bulls game. Now I know why it's called America's pasttime--it's not just a spectator sport. It's fun to watch the people from the crowd get to do things on the field in between innings. And catch a fly ball and eat some tasty park snacks!! We had a great time! – MarkSeawell, Citysearch
