The corrected release reads:

GROUPON OFFERS ULTIMATE CHICAGO CUBS EXPERIENCE – ONLY ONE UNIT AVAILABLE

Today Groupon offers the ultimate Chicago Cubs deal, an unforgettable package that includes every classic moment a fan could hope to experience within the Friendly Confines, from batting practice to throwing the first pitch. Groupon subscribers will need to keep an eye on the site; the deal could go live unexpectedly at any moment today and only one unit is for sale. 100% of the ticket cost will go to Chicago Cubs Charities. The deal is available at www.groupon.com/deals/gl-chicago-cubs-1.

For $30,000, the purchaser will attend batting practice with the Cubs, meet the players and gain some expert advice before throwing out the first pitch. They’ll then join up to 13 friends and a mystery former Cubs player for a watch party in The Audi Legends Suite, complete with food and beverages and autographed baseballs for every guest.

In addition to throwing the first pitch, the buyer will also:

  • Receive a full Cubs uniform, personalized with his or her name, and a photo of their name on the iconic Wrigley Field marquee
  • Enjoy the 7 th inning stretch near the press box, as a celebrity guest sings "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" with the crowd
  • Go on a personal tour of Wrigley Field
  • Sit behind the mic and answer questions about the game (complete with fake reporters) after the real media debrief

Additionally, upon arrival, the group will be welcomed on the LED screen and have the evening filmed by a videographer and captured in a highlight video.
