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: for $6, you get an outing for one to see the Potomac Nationals play the Kinston Indians at Pfitzner Stadium in Woodbridge (up to a $12 value). The outing includes the following items:
- One grandstand-seating ticket (an $8 value; tickets are a $7 value each for seniors and members of the military and free for children aged 5 and younger). Choose between the following games:
- Saturday, September 3, at 6:35 p.m.
- Sunday, September 4, at 1:05 p.m.
- One hot dog (a $4 value).
The Potomac Nationals—a single-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals—nabbed the Carolina League crown in 2010 with stately swings and majestic fastballs. Groupon-getters score grandstand seats to the game, where they can munch on sunbeams and hot dogs at one of the last games of the season. This year, southpaw Daniel Rosenbaum tops the P-Nats' pitching stats, striking out 108 batters over 132 innings while maintaining a trim 2.59 ERA. Outfielder Destin Hood has led the slugging crew with 12 homers, 78 RBIs, and a rousing bugle fanfare over 117 games.
Over the past 25 years, Pfitzner Stadium has cultivated eight former big-leaguers, including five-time National League MVP Barry Bonds. During the game, fans can admire a verdant outfield lined with natural grass or braid the luxurious blue fur of the team's mascot, Uncle Slam. Guests who attend the September 3 matchup can also enjoy a colorful fireworks display.
