Despite baseball's unofficial theme song, peanuts and crackerjacks were replacements for the original, mid-1850s snacks of heavily salted licorice and wooden chewin' slabs. Keep your family traditions classic, but not too classic, with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a reserved-seat ticket, a hot dog, chips, soda, five Freedom Bucks, and a KidsZone pass (a $27 total value) at a Florence Freedom game. This Groupon is valid for any home game through July 31 at Champion Window Field in Florence, Kentucky—about 20 minutes from downtown Cincinnati. Check the schedule ahead of time to plan your outing.
The Florence Freedom, a professional team of baseballers in the Independent Frontier League, re-create the classic thrill of America’s third-most popular sport, after skeet shooting and spelunking, without all the food fights and explosive bat malfunctions that are all too common at major-league games. With today’s deal, fans get reserved-seat tickets for any home game (a $10 value) all month and enjoy a true gourmet meal consisting of a hot dog, chips, and a drink (a $7 value). Miniature novelty adults, meanwhile, can burn off excess energy with a pass to the KidsZone (a $5 value)—a multicolored playground set complete with a bounce house and other playsets—or spend five Freedom Bucks (a $5 value) as they see fit at the park's concession stands or gift shop, making it far more valuable currency than the one you created by taping your driver's license photo to old Monopoly money.
To help encourage the Freedom sluggers in their quest for home runs and run-free stockings, twin eagle mascots named Liberty and Belle entertain the masses with enthusiastic gambols and frolickings. Relive your experience as an extra on the set of Field of Dreams with today’s Groupon to the Florence Freedom, which gives you full access to nine innings of fun among friends and family without the added horror of hearing strange voices whisper to you from cornfields.
