Babe Ruth was nicknamed "The Colossus of Trout" because his skills on the field derived from summers spent fishing the old-fashioned way—with a baseball bat and shallow water. Earn an epithet of your own with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a swing analysis and one hour of batting-cage time at Better Baseball in Marietta (a $25 value).

Better Baseball purveys a vast catalog of baseball and softball equipment for playing and coaches sluggers-in-training to keep their eyes on the ball and churn out frozen ropes. Allow one of the store's experts to scrutinize a sloppy chop and provide feedback on elbow placement, hip turn, and choice of stirrup before you take an hour's worth of swings in the on-site batting cage. After 10 years of operating Better Baseball online, owner Glen Robinson III opened the brick-and-mortar store in May 2009. With a 10 percent in-store discount, Groupon buyers can peruse its inventory of baseball-related wares that include everything from uniforms and bats to umpire gear and seventh-inning stretch tutorial DVDs.

Better Baseball

Going from managing ostriches to running a baseball business may seem like a strange jump, but it's just another day in the office for Better Baseball founder Glen Robinson III. In the 1980s, he began raising and selling ostriches and emus as food and as companions for people allergic to pet rocks. A warm spring morning brought an impromptu visit for a customer who was less interested in the massive birds, and more focused on the netting that separated the animals' pens. Soon, Glen was spending more time crafting batting cages than selling his livestock, inspiring him to open what would eventually become Better Baseball.

Today, this bird-free business furnishes players of America's favorite pastime with the gear they need to play Little League, softball, or even college-level games. After taking practice swings inside one of Glen's onsite cages, players can pick up the gloves, glove pads, and eye protection needed to help them catch any pop flies or poorly aimed Cracker Jack from the stands.

The batting cage is pretty basic, but it was fun. The store is fantastic! I have never seen so much baseball stuff in one place. It gladdens the heart to see that the youth of America has not completely abandoned baseball for soccer.
