The Class A-Advanced affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, the Clearwater Threshers open a four-game, season-ending series against the Dunedin Blue Jays on August 30. In third place in the Florida State League’s North Division after 124 games, the Threshers will attempt to make up ground against the Jays. The Jays have a 73–50 record that places them atop the division's totem pole, where no one can stop them from dropping coconuts on any pedestrian passing underfoot. With a team-high 81 RBIs and 16 home runs in 117 games played, the Threshers' first baseman, Jim Murphy, has anchored the club's offense along with outfielder Edgar Duran, whose 63 runs scored are second only to Murphy.
Spectators can cheer on double plays and towering home runs from the field boxes at the 8,500-seat Bright House Field, creating a human mural of shirts in red and blue—the team colors—under the stadium lights. During the game, Lokey Automotive Group will raffle off a used, 2009 Nissan Versa Hatchback, providing one lucky fan an easy means of lugging home a souvenir cinder block from the parking lot.
Though the Clearwater Threshers sometimes feature a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
