What You'll Get
Playing baseball takes coordination, upper-body strength, and the courage to run counterclockwise even though that direction is normally only for the immoral and weak-hearted. See strong-willed Americans with this GrouponLive deal to see a Stockton Ports game at Banner Island Ballpark. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get two tickets for MVP-level seating (a $24 value)

Tickets are valid for any of the team’s home games from Wednesday, August 1 until the final game of the regular season on Monday, September 3. See the schedule for a list of available games.
In their 63-year history as part of the California League, the Stockton Ports have won 11 championships, including one in 2008, all while advancing players such as Gary Sheffield, Ben Sheets, and Trevor Cahill to the big leagues. Last summer, the club fell just short of another title, and despite an up-and-down season in 2012, several Ports players have managed to whittle their bats into canoes, which they now hope to paddle upstream toward the shores of stardom.
Statistically speaking, catcher Beau Taylor leads the team with a .328 batting average over the course of 52 games. And big home-run numbers from outfielder Josh Whitaker have helped pitcher TJ Walz earn a team-best six victories. With such impressive figures, it's only a matter of time until someone receives a call from the A's, who typically signal the transition to the big leagues with a classic conch-shell performance of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."
Banner Island Ballpark
Looming on the waterfront of the California Delta, Banner Island Ballpark was built in 2005 and accommodates up to 5,200 Ports fans during each home game. Special promotions fill the mitts of visitors with freebies and discounts almost on a nightly basis, including $2 beers and sodas on Thursdays and a jersey giveaway on August 31. Rather than driving or trying to squeeze the whole family into the same wiffle ball, fans also have the option of cruising to a game on their boat, docking for $10 at the Stockton Downtown Arena.
