Enjoy a curveball spin on the national pastime with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get four tickets and one parking pass to the Wounded Heroes Baseball Classic charity baseball game on Saturday, March 12 at 3:00 p.m. at Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium (a $45 value).
Sponsored by Hope4Heroes and the MLB Players Alumni Association, the Wounded Heroes Baseball Classic game supports charitable causes through a casual game played by war veterans, active soldiers, and MLB greats. This year's game will feature appearances by several baseball pros, including Gaylord Perry, Rollie Fingers, Fergie Jenkins, Jeff Kent, Micah Bowie, Chuck McElroy, Jay Bell, and Jay Johnstone. A portion of the proceeds from the March 12 game will go to a community fund in honor of Christina-Taylor Green, the youngest casualty of the January 8 Tucson shooting, which will be used to provide for education programs in southern Arizona.
The festivities commence at 11:00 a.m. with a free MLB alumni kids' clinic, followed by an autograph session at 1:00 p.m. with legendary MLB players Lee Smith, Leon Brown, Duffy Dyer, and more. An appearance by avian sports entertainer Birdzerk! livens seventh-inning stretches with yuk-inducing crowd interactions and mischievous poultry high jinks.
