The Worcester Tornadoes man the diamond at Fitton Field, a historical ballpark that has hosted America's pastime for more than a century. The VIP tickets place onlookers right by all the infield action, close enough to admire players' torque-twisting swings and umpires' gentle coos. The included team baseball cap can be used to shield eyes from the harsh summer sun or to catch foul-tipped beverages as they plummet toward unsuspecting thighs. Purchasers of this Groupon can also enjoy half off admittance to the Tornadoes' opening-day game against the New York Federals on Monday, May 30 at 7:05 p.m.

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.

The Boston Red Sox Summer Camps whisk young hardball habitués away on weeklong journeys into baseball fantasyland, complete with uniforms and coaching from professional instructors. Attendees (ages 5–13) matriculate into six professional-sounding divisions, where they can improve power swings during home-run derbies and compete in baserunning races with children of the same age. Inspired play surfaces after baseball campers mingle with a current or former Red Sox player, depending on the Red Sox road schedule, or return from the all-access tour of Fenway Park. Scouting reports from the professional coaching staff highlight each camper's strengths and weaknesses in order to cultivate a well-rounded portfolio of baseball assets. A list of what to bring keeps campers from showing up with embarrassing entourages or mistakenly bringing pet vampire bats.

Join a throbbing throng of hoops fanatics in the intimate but imposing Hart Center, where the men's team has won more than 70% of its basket-aiming contests and the women's team has won more than 80%. Basketball novices and avid three-point-percentage analysts can marvel at the mechanics of second-team All-Patriot League selection Andrew Keister when the men's team, which returned four starters from last year’s squad, squares off against the St. Joseph's Hawks, the Yale Bulldogs, and the Lafayette Investment Bankers.
