To maintain its title as America’s favorite pastime, baseball has had to fend off the likes of milkshake-chugging contests and high-speed Internet installation. Defend tradition with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get one box-seat ticket to an Erie SeaWolves baseball game at Jerry Uht Park, along with a hot dog, a 12-ounce soft drink, a bag of chips, and a limited-edition Erie SeaWolves hat (a $38 total value). Choose from the following games:
• Thursday, August 4 at 7:05 p.m.: Erie SeaWolves versus the New Britain Rock Cats

The Double-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers, the Erie SeaWolves are fighting strong to climb the ranks in the Eastern League's very competitive Western Division. Help your local base-battlers by chanting incoherently at players from the Minnesota Twins' affiliate from New Britain, Connecticut, or cheer the SeaWolves onto victory against the Divisional foes from Harrisburg, led by 2010 No. 1 overall pick Bryce Harper. The SeaWolves get their run support from outfielder Justin Henry, currently batting .325 after 62 games, and limit the opposition's offense with incisive pitching from left-hander Casey Crosby, whose fastball has been known to punch small holes into the space-time continuum. Ballgame attendees can wash down their hot dog with a 12-ounce Pepsi product, then use their new limited-edition Erie SeaWolves hat to catch foul balls or small meteors from their seats in right field. Stick around after the last out has been recorded for a dazzling postgame display of fireworks on August 5th and 6th.
