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 $18, you get four tickets for your choice of Super-Box (up to a $40 value) or Upper-Box (up to a $36 value) seats, to any Modesto Nuts home game in April with the exception of the opening-day game on April 7. Games are held on John Thurman Field, and the April schedule features nine home-game options.
Currently a Class-A Advanced affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, the Modesto Nuts have earned a loyal fan base with a long-standing baseball tradition dating to 1946. Today’s deal gets eager ballhawks a chance to soak in the springtime sun with a choice of two seating options. Those with shorter eyeballs enjoy a closer view in Super-Box seats, which lie directly along the foul lines. Upper-Box seats rest above the fray of the field, allowing patrons the omniscient aerial view usually only afforded by strong-beaked, sentimental storks trying to re-create the past. Call dibs on a numbered seat in either section by trading in this Groupon at the box office.
In addition to fielding the current roster of hard-hitting hombres, historic John Thurman Field has been home to a host of Hall-of-Famers, including clutch slugger Reggie Jackson, World Series-winning coach Sparky Anderson, famed relief pitcher Rollie Fingers, and Rollie Fingers’ anthropomorphic mustache, Charles.
- The Nuts play hard with dreams of making it to the big leagues someday and there are a definite number of prospects that are on their way. – Joseph C., Yelp, 7/2/09
- The fans are into the game and never stop cheering. The seats are cheap and there aren't any bad seats in the house – Stephanie B., Yelp, 9/3/09
Since 1960, the city of Modesto has been the minor league home to six different big league franchises including the New York Yankees, the St. Louis Cardinals, and the Oakland Athletics. But despite all the bouncing around, the Nuts have consistently won, and have captured five California League championships over the years. Now affiliated with the Colorado Rockies, the team is still looking for its first title under the Nuts moniker, which it officially adopted in 2005 as a nod to the region's farming products and any fans who try to catch foul balls in their mouths.
