What You'll Get
After centuries of ridicule, baseball players have finally convinced professional crotchety-old-man Andy Rooney that running after flying orbs isn’t just for men in black or Harry Potter. Celebrate baseball's newfound acceptance among Americans with today’s Groupon: for $22, you get a field-box ticket at an upcoming Houston Astros game (a $39 value).
Much like the unspoken pact between Mario and Yoshi, we've decided to partner up with Ticketmaster to provide you with today's deal (see below for more info on Ticketmaster fees). Purchase a field-box ticket to one of the following Astros games:
- St. Louis Cardinals on Monday, August 30, at 7:05 p.m.
- Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday, September 11, at 6:05 p.m.
- Chicago Cubs on Friday, October 1, at 7:05 p.m.
As the season chugs along, the Astros are led by second baseman Jeff Keppinger and right-handed hurler Brett Myers. However the season ends, fans will be able to experience world-class athleticism and outfield-wall-scaling robberies in one of the nation's finest home-run habitats and fastball farms—Minute Maid Park. Built in 2000, the park boasts a natural-grass outdoor field, a 242-foot-high retractable roof, a distinctive center-field tornado, and a troll-guarded infield. Field-box seating treats you to some of the best seats in the house, as well as unobstructed views of relievers forming sweat-filled moats around the pitching mound and managers hand-signaling Chinese delivery-menu items to base runners.
Summer is not truly summer until you've attended a ball game or outrun a fireball in a summer blockbuster. Today's Groupon to the Houston Astros lets you cheer on deft dexterity and impressive leaping without having to spend a week living under a jungle canopy with Richard Simmons.
Note on Ticketmaster fees: You'll get the same percentage off the convenience charge, but you'll still need to pay the full Ticketmaster processing fee, the optional printing-at-home fee, and tax. Ain't no discounts on tax.
