Baseball remains the national pastime, despite recent challenges from upstart pastimes such as warming up bagel bites and discreetly Googling hernia symptoms at work. Spectate the sport of sportsmen with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get a four-pack of box-seat tickets to a Carolina Mudcats baseball game (up to a $40 value). The Mudcats play at Five County Stadium in Zebulon. This Groupon is good for home games Sunday–Thursday for the remainder of the 2011 season, which ends on September 5. Children ages 3 and younger are admitted for free.
The Mudcats, an AA affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds with alums including major leaguers Gaby Sanchez and Dontrelle Willis, are in the midst of their 21st season of swatting baseballs. With MLB veterans David Bell and Ryan Jackson returning as manager and hitting coach respectively, the Mudcats continue to develop future big leaguers. Featuring the hilarious on-field shenanigans of Muddy the Mudcat, the team provides family entertainment with on-field flurries of bat-whiffing curveballs, home-run strolls, and daring base stealing followed by on-field theft litigation.
In addition to the four tickets, purchasers of today's deal are eligible for a random drawing, depending on the total number of Groupons sold. If more than 1,000 Groupons are sold, one random purchaser will receive an autographed baseball. If more than 2,000 are sold, a second purchaser will have the opportunity to throw out a first pitch, and if more than 3,000 are sold, a third purchaser will receive a luxury suite for any Mudcats game Sunday–Thursday.
