You may not go to the beach or cook on the grill the entire weekend, right? So if you are looking for a fantastic live event to enjoy, here are some ideas.

Every game is hugely important and should produce lots of drama and excitement. The Yankees will throw C.C. Sabathia on Thursday night, newly acquired Sonny Gray on Friday night, Masahiro Tanaka on Saturday night and Luis Severino (vs. Boston ace Chris Sale) on Sunday night. Any of these games will be worth every penny.
