What You'll Get
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 $37 you get two tickets to the Mississippi Braves vs. the Jackson Generals on April 9 at 6:05 p.m., plus two baseball caps, $10 in Braves bucks, one Funzone wristband, and one game program (a $77 total value).
Lead off the Braves’s 2011 season with this opening weekend baseball package at Trustmark Park, where the Class AA Braves look to begin a successful campaign. Spend your Braves Bucks on nachos and a ballpark brew as leather-stitched strategies unfold in a 9-inning battle of line drives and diving catches. The dugout-level seats afford a clear view of the action and assist in the crucial task of throwing the opposing team’s batter off his swing with well-timed insults about his unevenly applied eye black. If your kids aren’t quite old enough to appreciate the intricacies of the four-seam fastball, the Funzone provides a safe environment for them to be entertained, with two areas of huge inflatable slides and obstacles, a bounce house, and a wiffleball cage; the wristband included in this deal grants unlimited use for one kid until the end of the game.
The Mississippi Braves, a AA minor-league affiliate of the Atlanta Braves, have partnered with several local charities this season, and April 9's game will feature the Zooperstars mascot act, sponsored by Farm Families of Mississippi.
