How to Knock Your World Series Celebration Out of the Park

Every year, baseball fans rejoice over the best week for two teams. The World Series isn’t easy to get into, but we’ve got a guide to doing it right whether you’re at the stadium or in your living room. While scoring tickets isn’t easy, scoring great deals is with coupons and promo codes.

Celebrating at Home
Making food for a whole group of people can be tough. Some people hate onions, some people can’t have dairy. How do you accommodate a room full of hungry fans? Try a hot dog bar! Grab your grocery coupons and save on easy-to-make buns and dogs to start with, and then let them load up on their favorite toppings. Arrange a clever buffet of peanuts, Crackerjack and other traditional baseball snacks for your guests.

You’ll find a home base for great deals on food and fixings at Walmart to make Series-watching games a lot more fun. Pick up food, paper plates and even – why not? – a new HDTV to keep peace in the household.

The Ultimate Fan Gear
If you start now, you’ll find great savings on unique items to express your loyalty (fanaticism?) to your favorite MLB team. Clocks, throws, drink coasters and all kinds of fan gear are available at retailers like Sports Authority. We really like these Skull Candy headphones – the better to hear the crack of the bat (or whatever the heck the ref said).

If you have a PlayStation 4 gaming system, follow your favorite teams and players with the newest addition of The MLB Show 14. This new and improved game simulator lets you relive the past, imagine the future and play an entire nine innings in half an hour.

Getting to the Game
If you’ve got the budget and fast fingers, you might be able to score tickets to the game on online retailers like StubHub and Vivid Seats. Logon to MLB.com and enter their sweepstakes for a chance to win tickets. Tickets go fast and are hard to get, but if you luck out, you’ll need to make travel accommodations right away. Fortunately, online deals can take the edge off of the expense of last minute travel. Last minute deals at travel sites like Expedia.com and coupon codes for major airlines make it easy to get anywhere in the country affordably and quickly.

Look Like a Fan
Jerseys, caps, jackets, hoodies and more – BaseballSavings.com and Lids have something for every member of the family in nearly every size to ensure they are decked from head to toe with team spirit. If you somehow let the deadline slip past, it’s almost certain you can snag a great deal on fan gear like this women’s sport tank top at Finish Line in time for the first game of the series.

The World Series can last up to seven games. While you might not be able to get seats – especially as the later games approach – seats can free up. Sometimes it’s who you know, like a season ticket holder who owes you a favor. Or you can show up and hope someone has a seat for sale. Be diligent and persistent and you could score unbelievable seats. But even if you can’t get inside the stadium, online deals can help you find the best seat of all with all the amenities – in your own living room!
