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 deal. For $20, you get a family four-pack of field box tickets to a Memphis Redbirds game in AutoZone Park. These tickets are valid for all Sunday through Thursday games in the 2010 season.
Field box seats put you close enough to the base-based action to smell the fresh grass and athlete sweat. Watch the game unfold from a perspective not normally glimpsed on television and appreciate the geometry and sports dynamics as they play out before you and three excited friends or indifferent family members. The Memphis Redbirds were the 2009 PCL champions, so be prepared for finely tuned minor-league action. AutoZone Park is frequently lauded for its charming atmosphere and great views.
A minor-league baseball game is wholesome entertainment for kids and adults alike and entirely preferable to attempting to form your own amateur baseball league, which invariably ends in violent, confused soccer rioting. Come with an empty, cavernous stomach, as AutoZone Park offers a variety of vittles, from ballpark classics such as hot dogs and chili pies to Whole Foods Market selections that include vegetarian and gluten-free foods.
- I've been to over 20 major and minor leauge sic ball parks, and for the minors this is one of the best. Lot of good food selections, beer/liquor, good seating all around. – Eric W., Yelp
- Not only is this a GREAT place to watch baseball, the staff is the friendliest, most helpful bunch you'll find. And the unique structure of the Memphis Redbirds (the team and the facility owned by a not-for-profit entity that puts money into inner-city and youth baseball in the area) makes going to the games a ritual you can really feel good about. Go Redbirds! – shollida, Citysearch
