In our experience, if you're going to skip work, Wednesday is the best day to do it. It breaks up the week, giving you the boost you need to push through til Friday. If you can pull a Ferris Bueller and catch a ball game while you play hooky, all the better.
So on Wednesday, June 19, you should head to Chase Field to watch the Arizona Diamondbacks as they face the Miami Marlins, bottom-dwellers of the NL East. Not only is the game mid-week, but it's mid-day, meaning you can get special matinee-priced tickets loaded with $5 in D-bucks in select seating areas. Just don't get caught on TV catching any fly balls.
The first pitch goes out at 12:40 p.m. Wednesday, June 19, at Chase Field, 401 East Jefferson Street. Visit www.azdbacks.com or call 602-462-6500 for tickets, $9 and up.
