There's only one month left before the boys of summer begin storing calories for winter hibernation. Witness the final remnants of 2009 baseball action with today's deal to see the Nationals take on the Manny Ramirez–led, NL West–leading Los Angeles Dodgers at Nationals Park on Thursday, September 24, at 7:05 p.m. Eighteen dollars gets you $30 seats in either the field-level box or the mezzanines—those are bleacher prices for distinctly non-bleacher seats. Limit 8 Groupons per person.
Choose between seats in the field-level left field box (buy here) or the left or right field mezzanines. Both options provide great views of baseballs being thrown, baseballs being hit with a bat, and baseballs being buried in the infield after the other team makes an error.
Although the Nationals are occupying the NL East cellar this season, fans still love cheering them on, enjoying the baseball experience, and eating hot dogs outdoors. Here's what Yelpers say about Nationals Park:
- Very metro friendly, the navy yard metro stop drops you off directly in front of the stadium. The stadium was [sic] new, easy directions to your seat, and the staff was exceptionally friendly. – tim t.
- This might be one of the finest sports venues I've ever been in! It's still so clean, and even smells new. Kinda. Great selection of food/booze vendors... – Vonetta Y.
Baseball's rich history is part of what makes the game America's pastime. Here are just a few of the greatest moments in baseball:
1909: Honus Wagner becomes baseball's greatest shortstop despite having no arms.
1947: Jackie Robinson breaks the color barrier, six wooden boards, and a pile of bricks when he mistakes his MLB debut for a karate tournament.
1985: The Cleveland Indians draft the entire cast of the film Major League four years before the film comes out.
