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 $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–Thursday home games in the 2011 season, and Groupon holders should call ahead to reserve tickets.
As Triple-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, the Memphis Redbirds picked up two Pacific Coast League championships in the last decade while serving as a stepping stone for future MLB stars. With last year's strong standing fresh in their minds, the Redbirds are sure to tackle this season with athletic, defensive snags, a battery of towering home runs, and a nonstop pummeling of aggressive hat-tips to the audience. With this deal, you'll watch the game unfold from field-box seats that offer a perspective not normally glimpsed on television and appreciate the geometry and sports dynamics of America's pastime. AutoZone Park was named the Top Minor League Ballpark in 2009 by Baseball America, which praised the park for its charming atmosphere and great views.
Come with an empty, cavernous stomach, as AutoZone Park offers a variety of vittles. Although not included with this Groupon, customers can treat themselves to everything from ballpark classics such as hot dogs and chili pies to selections that include vegetarian and gluten-free foods.
