There are only two things more American than baseball—eating a slice of apple pie while wearing a set of George Washington's dentures and taking a day off work to read Jamie Farr's autobiography. Partake in a piece of Americana with today's Groupon: for $23, you get one general-admission ticket to the Saturday, April 30 Pawtucket Red Sox game at historical McCoy Stadium, plus admittance to an all-you-can-eat pregame barbecue, one soft drink during the game, and a souvenir baseball cap (a $46 value). The barbecue lasts from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., and the game begins at 6:05 p.m.
The Pawtucket Red Sox, the Boston Red Sox's Triple-A affiliate, gives fans a glimpse of the players who are on the brink of cracking the glass ceiling in order to ascend into the pros. On April 30, will them to victory with shouts of encouragement from any of the blue general-admission seats as the team takes on the Toledo Mud Hens.
Before the game, guests can pile up their plates with an unlimited number of grilled picnic fare, including hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, and grilled chicken breasts, and creamy potato salad. After two hours of munching, guests can either stay in the barbecue area or hop inside the stadium. The ticket also grants you field access to the postgame fireworks show, which, like finding marshmallow peeps littered all over the ground, is the first sign of spring. The barbecue goes on rain or shine, but if the baseball game is canceled because of rain, tickets will be reissued for the Friday, May 13 game against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees.
