Babe Ruth was nicknamed "The Colossus of Trout" because his skills on the field derived from summers spent fishing the old-fashioned way––with a baseball bat and shallow water. Earn an epithet of your own with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two field-box tickets to a New Britain Rock Cats double-header against the Harrisburg Senators at New Britain Stadium at Willow Brook Park on Saturday, July 2 (a $20 value). The first game starts at 5:05 p.m.; the second game starts half an hour after the end of the first game, followed by a post-game pyrotechnics show in celebration of Independence Day.
On July 2, double-A Minnesota Twins affiliate the Rock Cats battle EAS Western League leaders and Washington Nationals affiliate Harrisburg Senators for diamond dominance in an evening double-header. Watch from field-box seats as the Rock Cats send baseballs flying far past the outstretched hands of outfielders and opposing players pose as hot-dog vendors. Whiskered Rock Cats mascots Rocky and Rookie pump up the crowd with spirited dancing as spectators shout encouragement between mouthfuls of nachos, kielbasa, and other concessions available at the stadium (not included in today's Groupon).
