With a former Oakland Athletic and two ex-minor leaguers on staff, Baseball Unlimited Training Center is a safe haven to help young hitters, pitchers, and fielders take their skills to the next level. The 7,500-square-foot facility houses five separate hitting and pitching tunnels extending to 65 feet in length, suitable for practicing all baseball or softball pitches, except for spitballs or cannonballs. The center hosts ballplayers ranging from little leaguers to college players, who can each take part in camps and clinics or practice individually through batting-cage rentals in 30-minute allotments.

Most people will never get the chance to play a round of golf at Augusta National. At Pappas Indoor Golf & Baseball, players can approximate that dream inside a trio of indoor golf simulators. The simulator screens replicate 230 courses in vivid detail, including Augusta and Scotland's Saint Andrews. The simulators share space with a well-rounded practice facility that includes a 1,600-square-foot putting green, 12 hitting bays, a short-game area, and a sand bunker. In areas designated for private lessons, PGA pro Bill Pappas polishes his clients' mechanics with the help of video swing-analysis equipment. Golfers aren?t the only athletes taking cuts at Pappas Indoor. The facility?s indoor batting cages let softball and baseball stars while away rainy days fine-tuning their swings or training pitching machines to feel human emotions.

The Athletic Club, located in a renovated warehouse at 653 Summer, has a variety of weight loss options beyond standard workout machines. Consult with their staff dietician about your unfortunate lard-only diet, and she can guide you towards the in-house restaurant for some healthy alternatives. Da Club (as it's known by clever patrons) offers classes like “Group Kick” (martial arts and boxing), yoga, pilates, cycling classes, and the non-ancient art of “Zumba”— a Latin/Merengue/Reggaeton dance-fitness fusion, or the new millennium’s answer to the 90s sensation of “Cardio Funk”. Lovers of both fitness and dismemberment can partake in a “Legs, Butts and Guts” toning class.

Fenway Park, the capital of Red Sox Nation, stands as a near-mystical ballpark that has hosted legends such as Babe Ruth and Ted Williams. To this day, the faithful flock to here to watch their beloved Red Sox take the field, but many cherished corners of this 101-year-old stadium beg for a closer look than the stands can afford. And year-round, knowledgeable guides pay proper respect to the famed features with one-hour narrated tours of the ballpark. Visitors will find themselves looking down on the diamond from atop the 37-foot, two-inch Green Monster outfield wall, then stop by Pesky’s Pole while learning the history of the franchise, the players, and the laundry mishap that terminated the team’s original name, “The Boston Sepia Sox.” In addition to general ballpark tours, Fenway also offers batting-practice tours that begin three hours prior to game time. Fans can pose for a picture on the warning track and catch fly balls from the Green Monster as their favorite players warm up for that day’s contest.
