Despite baseball's unofficial theme song, peanuts and crackerjacks were replacements for the original, mid-1850s snacks of heavily salted licorice and wooden chewin' slabs. Keep your family traditions classic, but not too classic, with today's Groupon: for $16, you get four general-admission tickets to any 2011 home game of the Huntsville Stars at Joe W. Davis Stadium (up to a $32 value). Check the schedule for upcoming home games.
Since 1985, the Hunstville Stars have cracked homers and tossed strikes as a AA affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. Contending for the Southern League square-dancing crown, the team stocks a loaded lineup to battle the likes of the Birmingham Barons, Chattanooga Lookouts, and Carolina Mudcats. This season’s squad includes first baseman Sean Halton and the pitching wizardry of Daniel Meadows. Joe W. Davis Stadium roars when the Stars hit the field, holding tight to one of the toughest home-field advantages since George Patton took up Risk. This deal entitles visitors to stretch seventh-inning-style in one of the more than 10,000 seats, from the first-base line to the upper deck.
A visit to a Stars game today is an opportunity to watch potential stars of tomorrow, as the team’s talent pool saw seven players get whisked off to the major leagues last year in a sticky deluge of Big League Chew. Fans get an extra dose of delight with the Stars’ weekly promotions, such as Wednesday bingo games for big prizes in the stands.
