Because baseball games can never end in a tie, some contests can last for centuries, often concluding in spectacular grand-slams crashing through the bio-stadium's glass windows and into the lunar landing lot. Witness America's most futuristic pastime with today's Groupon: for $6, you get two tickets to a University of the Pacific Tigers baseball game (up to a $12 value). This deal is good for either Saturday, May 21, against the Cal Poly Mustangs; or Tuesday, May 24, against the California Golden Bears. Both games start at 6 p.m. at Klein Family Field. General-admission seating for kids 12 and under is free.
Fresh off a winning season in 2010, the Pacific Tigers return in 2011 with aspirations to climb the Big West Conference standings. Held in the university's Klein Family Field, both baseball matches honor America's pastimes as the Tigers launch home runs and potatoes down the field's 395-foot center-straightaway. Led by senior Brian Martin at first base and Matt Carvutto in the outfield, the Tigers will battle Big West Conference rivals the Cal Poly Mustangs on May 21. The California Golden Bears visit the Tigers on May 24 to finally settle the age-old zoological debate of which wild predator—tiger or bear—is better at hunting fly balls.
