Baseball is a game of superstitions: hitters don’t wash helmets while on a streak, and managers don’t brush their teeth for weeks after a great argument with an umpire. Discover your own diamond rituals with this GrouponLive deal to see the Iowa Cubs play against the New Orleans Zephyrs at Principal Park. For $18, you get a game package for two on Saturday, May 5, at 7:05 p.m. (up to a $36 total value). Game packages include the following:
- Two tickets for reserved grandstand seating (up to a $10 value each)
- Two margaritas (an $8 value each)</p>
With names such as Maddux, Grace, and Wood planted across their historic timeline, the Iowa Cubs steamroll into the second month of the 2012 season as fans scout future stars and absorb Cinco de Mayo’s festive vibes. New skipper Dave Bialas steps away from more than a decade of duties with the big-league Cubs to manage their Triple-A affiliate, a team that has its collective sights set on Pacific Coast League supremacy. After being acquired in a January trade, first baseman Anthony Rizzo has lived up to preseason hype by landing among the league leaders in home runs, RBIs, and batting average, and center fielder Brett Jackson looks to build on a solid 2011 effort, when he launched a combined 20 homers into the open gloves and curio cabinets of people sitting in outfield seats.
During the May 5 battle against the division-leading Zephyrs, margaritas offset smooth swings with sweet sips. Before the game, the first 1,000 fans can collect magnetic schedules and, between innings, Principal Park keeps guests entertained with various off-the-field attractions, including a concourse fountain used to cool down pintsize fans and the smoking cleats of speedy base stealers.
