Just like flying squirrels, baseball players are adept at gliding across grassy fields, munching on seeds, and dodging bats in mid-air. Witness this acrobatic species in its natural habitat with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $16, you get two 100-level reserved-seating tickets to a Round Rock Express Minor League Baseball game against the Albuquerque Isotopes (a $28 value), plus parking for one vehicle (a $5 value), at The Dell Diamond in Round Rock (a $33 total value). Choose between the following games:
• Saturday, September 3, at 7:05 p.m.
• Sunday, September 4, at 6:05 p.m.
A Triple-A affiliate of the 2010 American League Champion Texas Rangers, Round Rock Express fields a squad of skilled players who bat, slide, steal, and knock spherical things out of The Dell Diamond. Because tomorrow's major-league baseball stars emerge from minor-league dark matter, catching a Round Rock Express game today is like seeing into the future, only without seeing far enough to glimpse terrifying robot insurrections. This season, first baseman Brad Nelson battles fellow first baseman Chad Tracy for the title of the team’s batting-stats champ: Nelson has logged 21 homers and 67 RBIs over 102 games, and Tracy has mined 20 homers and 87 RBIs from the fertile stadium soil over 111 games. Center fielder Leonys Martin mans the outfield after being called up from the Frisco RoughRiders and being named an all-star earlier this season in the Texas League.
Fans will witness the action in crystal-clear detail from 100-level reserved seats, preventing them from climbing the 16-foot-high video screen to get a good view. The Dell Diamond has earned kudos from USA Today thanks to its tasty concessions, fireworks at selected games (including the September 4 matchup), and a swimming pool overlooking right field. Meanwhile, vehicles can socialize in an on-site parking lot that holds more than 4,000 cars and a few extremely lost zambonis.
