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
The Stockton Ports have been putting in serious overtime in mid-July, going to 13 or more innings in three games over the span of a week. In the last of these marathon matches, right fielder Josh Whitaker hit a two-run single to emerge victorious in the 13th inning, sparing everybody from taking the league-mandated power nap in the 14th-inning stretch. As the Ports continue onward through August, they'll rely on the offensive fortitude of third baseman B.A. Vollmuth, who leads the team in home runs.
The Stockton Ports have been a part of California baseball since before there was even a league. Players have been slinging pitches, swinging bats, and attempting to translate umpires' calls in the town of Stockton for more than a century. But it wasn't until 1941— when Minor League Baseball decided to plant roots in California—that the Ports became an official organization. The Ports jumped at the chance to join up, becoming one of the founding members of the newly created California League. Over the course of the team’s 63-year history, the Ports have won 11 championships, including one in 2008.
