Before baseball, there was mace-maul, a medieval sport in which players wore chainmail uniforms, no-hitters were a bad thing, and each team’s disabled list was much, much longer. Support a more civilized sporting event with today’s GrouponLive deal to see a Spring Training game between the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds at Goodyear Ballpark. For $18, you get two tickets for outfield box seating, plus a parking pass (up to a $48 total value, including all Ticketmaster fees). Choose between the following games:
- Cincinnati Reds vs. Cleveland Indians on Saturday, March 3, at 1:05 p.m.
- Cleveland Indians vs. Cincinnati Reds on Sunday, March 4, at 1:05 p.m.<p>
Goodyear Ballpark’s base paths sizzle with fresh talent and high hopes as Major League Baseball slides into the 2012 season. After a surprising second-place finish in the American League Central Division in 2011, the Cleveland Indians storm into opening weekend of Spring Training behind sure-handed shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, known for startling rival pitchers by hiding firecrackers beneath the mound. Across the field, Reds’ first baseman Joey Votto unleashes his slugging prowess on home run after home run. Fans can marvel at the sun-splashed diamond from outfield box seats, where foul balls frequently sail into the stands in hopes of landing in the soft tufts of a glove or hot-dog bun. Game-goers can further enhance their experience by bringing items from home, including prepackaged snacks, small umbrellas, and banners.
Though Goodyear Ballpark offers discounted prices to seniors and military, this Groupon still represents the best deal for most.
