The Double-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians and the 2009 champs of the Eastern League, the Akron Aeros opened the 2011 season with the debut of Homer, a cuddly purple polka-dotted pigeon mascot. As the season draws to a close, Aeros catcher Chun Chen has impressed Aeros’ fans over 100 games, logging 62 RBIs, 14 homers, and a career-best 1.7 hot dogs eaten per inning. During the game, Groupon getters can cheer on the team while wearing official Aeros hats and fanning the mustache fires of nearby spectators with a handy media guide.
The Aeros make their home in downtown Akron's Canal Park, which boasts picnic areas and one of the minor leagues' largest freestanding scoreboards. The intimate 9,097-seat park affords fans a closeup opportunity to watch dazzling double plays and chant heartbreaking Elizabeth Barrett Browning poems at opposing hitters.
