Playing baseball takes coordination, upper-body strength, and the courage to run counterclockwise even though that direction is normally only for the immoral and weak-hearted. See strong-willed Americans with this GrouponLive deal.

The Scouting Report
Baseball returns to Park City as the Bluefish dive cleats-first into their 16th season. Throughout the season, veteran outfielder Prentice Redman will once again anchor the 'Fish lineup. In 2012, Redman slugged 21 homeruns and knocked in 82 RBIs–numbers that led the entire Atlantic League. Fans can take advantage of frequent promotions, including free giveaways and Saturday night fireworks shows designed to scare runaway umpires back into their ballpark cages.
In 2012, the Bluefish became the first team in Atlantic League history to reach 1,000 victories. It was a huge milestone for a franchise that today, stands as one of only two remaining charter teams throughout the entire league. The 'Fish initially brought baseball back to Park City in 1998, and advanced to the league championship series in a losing effort. A year later, though, they returned with their first league title after defeating the Somerset Patriots.
The team's early success established a winning tradition–in fact, the Bluefish didn't suffer their first losing season until their eighth year of existence. Winning hasn't been the only tradition in Bridgeport, however. The Bluefish battle the Long Island Ducks every season for the Ferry Cup, trying to establish regional supremacy on the baseball diamond instead of by firing a barrage of used baseballs across the Long Island Sound.
