Babe Ruth was nicknamed "The Colossus of Trout" because his skills on the field derived from summers spent fishing the old-fashioned way––with a baseball bat and shallow water. Earn an epithet of your own with today's Groupon: for $25, you get an Ultimate Fan Pack for the Glacier Pilots 2011 baseball season plus two drinks at the ballpark (a $60 value). This Groupon must be redeemed for tickets before June 5. The Ultimate Fan Pack includes one general-admission ticket to the following events: Opening Night on June 5; Military Appreciation Night on June 11; Summer Solstice Showdown Game on June 18; St. Patty's Day in June Theme Night on June 30; All-Star Game on July 17; Home Run Derby on July 17; Celebrity Softball Game on July 30; and Game 1 of the Mayor's Cup on August 1.
As five-time National Baseball Congress champions, the Glacier Pilots return for a 42nd season in Anchorage with a new team of magnetic youngsters culled from America’s top collegiate baseball programs. Players scrap through 27 outs in the intimacy of Mulcahy Stadium, with more than 5,000 seats that perch fans as close to the action as they can get without getting dangerously close to an outfield that re-creates the moon’s lower-gravity environment. General-admission tickets grant access to the bleachers on the first- and third-base lines, as well as the grandstand and its wheelchair-accessible seats in the area behind home plate.
Former Glacier Pilots include current Boston Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury, as well as the “Big Unit” himself, Randy Johnson. This Groupon also pours its holder two drinks at the stadium, a delicious method of alleviating throats that have been parched from heckling the opposing ball boy about his baseball dedication after noticing a general lack of mustard stains.
Anchorage Glacier Pilots
Having adopted the nickname of Alaskan aviation innovator Bob Reeve, the Anchorage Glacier Pilots have had the state's history in their lifeblood since they first took the field in 1969. Over the years, the Pilots' rising collegiate stars have won the National Baseball Congress World Series—held in Wichita, Kansas—five times. Each game, up to 5,300 baseball fans can pack the stands at Mulcahy Stadium, which was built back in 1953 when every American was legally obligated to eat a whole apple pie during the seventh-inning stretch.
