Babe Ruth was nicknamed "The Colossus of Trout" because his skills on the field were 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 game against the Trenton Thunder at New Britain Stadium at Willow Brook Park on Saturday, September 3, at 7:05 p.m. (a $20 value).
On September 3, Double-A Minnesota Twins affiliate the Rock Cats battle EAS Eastern League rivals and New York Yankees affiliate the Trenton Thunder for diamond dominance. Watch from field-box seats as the Rock Cats send baseballs flying far past the outstretched hands of outfielders and opposing players working undercover 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). Saturdays also feature the Rock Cats Pre-Game Block Party celebration, bursting with games, prizes, and trained tabbies leading group cheers, as well as a prize-packed Launch-A-Ball gala after the baseball bout.
