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 $40, you get four field box tickets to a Jupiter Hammerheads home game plus access to a pre-game meet and greet with a player (an $80 value). Choose from any regular season home game. Customers who want to participate in the meet and greet should call in advance to check for availability and arrive an hour before the game.
As the Advanced Class A affiliate of the Florida Marlins, the Jupiter Hammerheads showcase diamond-dwellers aspiring to follow the path to major league fame already trodden by alumni such as Cliff Lee. Gather a quartet of friends or singing barbers and witness the homeric battle between ball and bat as it plays out at Roger Dean Stadium, also home of the Palm Beach Cardinals and the newest baseball facility of its kind in Florida. From field box seats, stretching down the first- and third-base lines, fans will enjoy unobstructed views of Hammerhead players as they intimidate opponents into submission with rocket-fueled fastballs, gravity-razzing catches, and cryptic riddles.
Win or lose, glove-handed enthusiasts can get up close to the Hammerheads roster during a meet and greet. Arrive an hour early and play catch with a player, who will kindly refrain from pointing out how often you accidentally call them "Daddy."
