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
On August 20–26, the Missions take the diamond at Wolff Stadium for their final home stand of the regular season. It just so happens that it might be the team’s most important home stand of the season, too. After the Frisco RoughRiders gallop into San Antonio for a four-game set, the Corpus Christi Hooks visit for a series that could decide which team gets to the second-half South Division crown, and which team has to wear jester hats for the 2014 season. Since the start of the second half, the Missions and Hooks have jockeyed for position atop the standings. While the Hooks have won with power all season—they lead the league in home runs—the Missions have done so with pitching, leading the league in ERA and compiling the third-most strikeouts.
San Antonio Missions
On Wednesday, September 14, 2011, the Missions began what would turn out to be the longest postseason game in Texas League history. Playing against the Arkansas Travelers in the league's championship series, the Missions battled to a 5–4 victory that took 20 innings—and a spillover into Thursday—to settle. The win propelled the Missions to a series sweep, earning the franchise its 12th championship since the Texas League was founded in 1888.
Throughout those 113 years, the Texas League underwent many changes, but San Antonio stood firm—the only one of the league's six original teams to play in three different centuries. As the San Diego Padres' Double-A affiliate, the Missions continue their legacy at their home field, Wolff Stadium, a 6,200-seat facility complete with a grass berm in left field where fans can sprawl out to watch the innings and where umpires sunbathe between games.
