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, May 14 Pawtucket Red Sox game at historic McCoy Stadium, plus admittance to an all-you-can-eat pregame barbecue, one soft drink during the game, and a collectible card set and PawSox piggy bank (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 May 14, will them to victory with shouts of encouragement from any of the blue general-admission seats as the team takes on the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees.
Before the game, guests can pile up their plates with an unlimited amount of grilled picnic fare, including hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, 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 barbecue goes on rain or shine, but if the baseball game is canceled because of rain, tickets will be reissued for the Monday, May 16 game against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees.
