Because baseball games are no longer used to settle land disputes and damages from horse collisions, they’ve become the battleground for deciding which U.S. city will be the first to move to the moon. Catch a nation-changing showdown with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a general-admission 10-ticket booklet to see the Iowa Cubs (a $50 value). Tickets are valid in any quantity and for any 2011 home game at Principal Park.
A breeding ground for future Chicago Cubs stars like alums Kerry Wood, Carlos Zambrano, and Geovany Soto, the Triple-A Iowa Cubs generate the cheers of baseball connoisseurs through a masterful display of dexterous double plays, smoking strikeouts, and crowd-pleasing home runs. Under the new management of Bill Dancy, who boasts 1,604 minor-league victories, the I-Cubs are poised to start 2011 in winning form and improve upon last year's 82–62 mark. Watch as Herculean hurler Jay Jackson strikes out petrified batters and right-fielder Brad Snyder looks to top the 25 home runs and 107 second-base slam dunks from last season's play. Home games begin on April 15, but baseball boosters can begin planning romantic dates and family-fun days by checking out the seating chart and 2011 game schedule.
Minor-league affiliates of the Los Angeles Dodgers, St. Louis Cardinals, San Francisco Giants, and others will enter the lion's den of Principal Park, which features new seats, a state-of-the-art scoreboard, and a fountain where fans can cool off on hot days.
