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: for $25, you get a game-day package for two to see the New Britain Rock Cats play the Harrisburg Senators at New Britain Stadium on Monday, April 9, at 6:35 p.m. (a $50 total value). Game-day packages include:
- Two tickets for field-box seating, marked in purple on the seating chart (a $12 value each)
- Two hot dogs (a $2.75 value each)
- Opportunity to run around the bases (a $10.25 value each)<p>
New Britain Stadium’s diamond kicks up earth beneath the cleats of the Rock Cats, who bound around base paths and glide across freshly mowed outfield grass. As the Double-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, the Rock Cats clubhouse is baseball’s equivalent of an arboretum, thriving seasonally with big-league-ready talent while fostering such talent as Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau, David Ortiz, and Torii Hunter. Last season, center fielder Joe Benson surfaced as the Cats’ latest prodigy, clubbing 16 homers, stealing 13 bases, and setting a franchise record for crossword puzzles completed during rain delays before earning a September call-up from the Twins.
Following the frenetic lead of Rocky, a full roster of mascots entices eyes with an arsenal of family-friendly entertainment. An extra dose of off-the-field entertainment can also be savored inside the ballpark’s Fun Zone (not included with this deal), where fans test their skills by smacking baseballs in a homerun derby, throwing fastballs with speed pitch, or swinging an oversize hot dog to prepare for the day when professional baseball decides all bats must be made of sausage.
