The Springfield Armor thrills hometown hoops fans by laying siege to Developmental League opponents with a fully loaded roster of potential NBA stars. Led by head coach Bob MacKinnon Jr., the Armor tips off a fresh season against conference rival Maine Red Claws, returning up to six players from last year's roster. Slam-dunk champion LD Williams dazzles crowds by sinking alley-oops and opposing mascots through the hoop, and points-machine JamesOn Curry, the franchise's all-time leading scorer, seeks to build on 2010's strong performance. As the D-League affiliate of the New Jersey Nets, the Armor grants b-ball enthusiasts the chance to watch future NBA players before they pick-and-roll into the national spotlight or sign million-dollar contracts to join an experimental league inside the heads of Mount Rushmore. Although not included with today's Groupon, MassMutual Center surrounds guests with a variety of attractions, including the Center Grille Restaurant, Breakaway Bar, and a gift shop.

A member of the New England Collegiate Baseball League since 2008, the Blue Sox incubates top college players while they stay fresh and limber between seasons in the NCAA. Partially funded by Major League Baseball, the league consists of 10 teams across six New England states, all competing in a summer of hardball that begins in June and concludes with the playoffs in August, just before players trade in baseballs for rubber-band balls and return to school. Originally founded in 1997 as the Concord Quarry Dogs, the Blue Sox wield homefield advantage at Mackenzie Stadium, a venue that can seat more than 4,000 fans or 30 anti-T-shirt missile silos.
