Baseball enthusiasts can’t properly behold the glorious seventh-inning stretch in a crowded living room, because there’s always someone standing on the coffee table getting his forehead rhythmically slammed by the ceiling fan. Catch the game in comfort with today's deal: for $16, you get one Solon Club ticket to an upcoming Sacramento River Cats baseball game (a $36 value) plus a souvenir River Cats home replica hat (a $19 value). The River Cats, who have claimed countless division championships in the past decade, continue to play under the lights at beautiful Raley Field, one of the top-10 minor-league parks according to USA Today. This Groupon (a $55 total value) allows you to enjoy the off- and on-field excitement during one of the following River Cats home games vs. the Colorado Springs Sky Sox:
- Tuesday, July 27, 2010, at 7:05 p.m.
- Wednesday, July 28, 2010, at 7:05 p.m.
- Thursday, July 29, 2010, at 7:05 p.m.
Watch the River Cats shred the Sky Sox like a pair of standard cotton socks from the comforts of the Solon Club, the River Cat's open-air sports bar. Located a few rows off of the right-field foul line, the Solon Club combines the joys of live spectatorship with the luxuries of televised replays, accessible ballpark eats, and a fully stocked bar (food and beverage purchases not included with ticket price). As the sun dips below the horizon during the seventh-inning stretch, remove your souvenir River Cats cap—complete with slick lettering and design—and salute the baseball spirits who came all the way from their cornfield to prove that dreams not only come true, but they also come in the form of hot dogs.
- The bottom line: if you want to see a minor-league park done perfectly, Raley Field is the model. It feels more intimate than a ballpark half its size, and the River Cats quickly became an integral part of the greater Sacramento community -- a key component to the team's success. – Kevin Reichard, Ballpark Digest
