Armed with swift pitches, brawny line drives, and a division-topping season record, the Arizona Diamondbacks sprint toward their first National League West crown since 2007. Instead of catching the game by posing as the new bat-hoarding termite inspector, fans can watch the action from baseline-reserve seats along the left- and right-field foul lines. This season, right-handed hurler J.J. Putz baffled 9th-inning hitters while posting 51 strikeouts, 39 saves, and a mega-slim 2.44 ERA over 51.2 innings pitched. After 148 games, right fielder Justin Upton marches toward his 600th career hit while lugging 86 RBIs, a .296 batting average, and a tuba signed by John Philip Sousa.

Fred Astaire Dance Studios' highly experienced instructors instill the subtle elegance of waltzes, fox trots, and tangos into dancing gams. Private introductory lessons school feet in a choice of over 20 styles during sessions, as individuals or couples learn the basics of ballroom dance, dance-floor etiquette, and surgical options available for second left feet. Aside from private sessions, group classes encourage amateur dancers to test out their skills with fellow frolickers during 45 minutes of sashaying and socializing. By the end of their introductory education, students whirl and waltz through the studio's spacious dancing environment with more confidence than the Lord of the Dance at an Irish nightclub.
