MLB & Groupon Enable Baseball Fans to Get Up Close and Personal with Their Favorite Teams

During the baseball offseason, we’ve been warming up our pitching arm to provide one-of-a-kind experiences to baseball fans during the upcoming 2013 season.

Today we’re proud to announce a multi-year partnership with MLB Advance Media (MLBAM), the interactive media and Internet company of Major League Baseball, to become MLB.com’s official daily deals site.

We’ll be working with the league’s teams to offer a greater number of tickets deals, official merchandise and rare experiences such as up-close encounters at MLB ballparks.

What does this insider status look like? Past deals have included exclusive access to World Series ticket packages, batting practice with an MLB team, the chance to throw out the first pitch before a game, an official Jumbotron welcome to the stadium and a tour of the locker room where your favorite players starch their lucky socks.

Look for deals similar to these and more on GrouponLive events platform (available at www.groupon.com/live) and via the Groupon mobile app.
