Indiana Baseball Academy's dedicated staff draws upon years of professional experience and a passion for the game to fine-tune game-winning techniques in each of their students. During individual lessons, baseballers hone specific skills, such as pitching, catching, hitting, or fielding, and build efficient muscle memory while correcting common mistakes such as inefficient throwing movements or using novelty-sized sausages as baseball bats. By taking lessons from one of the academy's qualified coaches, aspiring athletes can join the ranks of accomplished alumni, many of whom now play baseball at the professional or collegiate level.
As a member of the U.S. Golf Association, both of GolfTEC's golf tech centers are staffed by experienced PGA golfing professionals and computers who’ve been programmed in compliance with the Three Laws of Golfing Robotics, particularly the First (a robot must not move the ball from where it lies or, through inaction, allow a ball to be moved). Motion sensors and high-speed cameras monitor your swing and break down your form on a high-definition video display. GolfTEC’s PGA specialists will then point out flaws, emphasize strengths, and coach you on how to permanently improve your game from tee to green. Their sensors will chirp with approval when you finally execute a perfect stroke or crack an especially witty putting pun.
Running strong for 37 years, the Indianapolis Greek Fest collects Hellenic food, music, and tradition under the benevolent bulk of the Holy Trinity Church. Tote along family members or a triad of friends to nosh on Greek cuisine while gazing at the fancy and authentic footwork of costumed dance troupes. Spiced hunks of lamb twirl send savory aromas wafting far and wide, and patrons can yank flavor from the ocean by nibbling on fried calamari. Flaky and feta-cheesy spanakopita rests easily between fingers, and flaming saganaki bounces frantically between daredevil fingers. Sugary bites, from honey-drenched baklava to buttery koulourakia, cloy pleasingly at the palate, and thirsty throats can quaff a Dionysian refreshment and revive parched stomachs with wine and beer. Transmute Grecian enthusiasm into dance by bumping up against the energetic sounds of Greek band Kosta and the Wave, or delve into the rich, storied and ornately painted tradition of Greek Orthodox Christianity with regular church tours of the Trinitarian sanctuary throughout the fest.

Boredom is a foreign concept at Stacked Pickle. From its lengthy and eclectic menu to the games broadcasted on 92-inch projectors, the dynamic eatery provides something for every taste. Diners can bite into one of nine half-pound burgers, wrap their hands around spicy-chicken tacos, or build a castle with their golden-fried fish and chips, all while admiring professional athletes run, jump, and score on one of many 50-inch plasma TVs.
