The Palm Beach Cardinals—the Class A Advanced affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals—send stitched spheres flying over the fences at Roger Dean Stadium. Ticket holders can fashion themselves a Cardinal for a day by throwing the first pitch to officially signal the beginning of the game and to weed out baseballs that detonate on impact. After the ceremonial proceedings, adolescent attendants 12 and younger act as honorary bat kids, hauling the rosin bag to the pitching mound. The Fast Pitch package includes four field box game-day tickets, giving family units admission for field box seats to any 2011 regular-season home game of their choosing.

Matthew Altbuch started learning the art of circus performance at the tender age of eight, quickly mastering the unicycle, juggling, and the trapeze. Throughout school, he performed in talent shows, ultimately going on to spend time with the Florida State Flying High Circus after college. Eventually, he realized his passion lay in sharing the circus arts with others, so he founded Aerial Trapeze Academy to carry out his mission of training performers around the world. He now lives his dream, joined by three other teachers as he holds trapeze classes for the next generation of gravity-defiers.
