Before becoming America's favorite pastime, baseball was the official sport of tree frogs, where home runs gave splinters and catching fly balls resulted in lunch. Witness the thrills of this species-spanning sport with today's Groupon: for $12, you get four tickets to the University of Arizona Wildcats' baseball series against the University of Washington Huskies (up to a $24 value).

The University of Arizona Wildcats baseball program scores runs and throws strikes against collegiate opponents of the Pac-10 conference and beyond. The Wildcats look to end their regular season with a strong win against their conference rivals, the Washington Huskies, to secure end-season bragging rights and settle feline-vs.-canine drooling debates. The three-game block also marks the last regular season game series for Wildcat seniors Josh Garcia, Bryce Ortega, Bobby Rinard, and Jacob Meskin. The four-ticket pack can be split any way the brandisher desires, allowing a pair of baseball enthusiasts to attend two games or a group of friends to partake in one match.
University of Arizona Wildcats
Over the years, the University of Arizona’s athletic teams have been linked together by one phrase: “bear down.” Now the official battle cry of the Wildcats, those were the dying words of an iconic student-athlete, John “Button” Salmon, who died in 1926 after a fatal car accident. Since then, the phrase has stood behind countless milestone moments, such as when Lute Olson, in 1983, became the 11th head coach of the Wildcats men’s basketball team, setting off a string of 25 consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances—including a national title in 1997. Several other national titles belong to Arizona outside of the hardwood, including four from the men’s baseball team and eight from the women’s softball program. Every fall inside Arizona Stadium, the Wildcats football team rouses up to 56,000 fans with hard-hitting Pac-12 showdowns, by far the most popular event on campus behind the linguistics department’s weekly phonetics bee.
