Just like flying squirrels, baseball players are adept at gliding across grassy fields, munching on seeds, and dodging bats in mid-air. Witness this acrobatic species in its natural habitat with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a family fun pack for four to a Florida Collegiate Summer League home game (a $25 value).

The Florida Collegiate Summer League assembles 160 top college athletes each summer to play wooden-bat baseball in a competitive atmosphere intended to prepare them for careers in professional baseball. Four general-admission tickets unlock a plethora of best-available seating options at one of five home fields for your quad-pod pack of family members. Alternate nourishing bites from four hot dogs and bags of chips with hydrating drags from four icy soft drinks while viewing inspiring feats of athleticism such as grand slams, base burglary, and home-stretch backflips.
The nonprofit, MLB-funded league oversees six Central Florida teams that operate under the tutelage of highly experienced coaches and amateur pitcher's mounds during a crackerjack schedule. Since its inception in 2003, the Florida Collegiate Summer League has ceded 137 former players and their stunt doubles to the MLB draft, with a 2010 draft haul of 26 players.
