Baseball is a game of cherished traditions, from the ticker-tape parade after every run to the gentlemanly glove-slap that signals a fistfight on the pitcher's mound. Demand sportsmanlike satisfaction with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a four-pack of reserved-area tickets to a Shreveport-Bossier Captains baseball game at Fair Grounds Field (a $20 value). Choose between the following games:
•Against the Amarillo Sox on Saturday, July 30th at 7:05 p.m.
•Against the Fort Worth Cats on Saturday, August 20th at 7:05 p.m.
The Shreveport-Bossier Captains entertain fans with the hard-hitting action of independent league baseball while they posture for positioning in the South Division standings. On July 30th, the sweet-swinging Bryan Sabatella and the rest of his gloved comrades will steal, bunt, and perform hidden ball tricks to defend their honor against division rival, the Amarillo Sox. Alternatively, on August 20th, they'll go bat-to-bat against the Fort Worth Cats in an attempt to break the 1921 Giants' long-standing record of most seventh-inning stretches per game. As players circle the bases, families can soak in the sun, nibble on concessions, and swat at foul balls in the family-friendly confines of the newly updated Fair Grounds Field.
In addition to pleasing baseball purists with exciting pitching and evolved hand signaling, the Captains wow the masses with daily promotions such as the Miller Lite and 98 Rocks "Jersey Off Our Back Night" at the July 30th game and the LA Lottery and 98 Rocks "Shirt Off Our Back Night" at the August 20th game.
