Playing baseball takes coordination, upper-body strength, and the courage to run counterclockwise even though that direction is normally only for the immoral and weak-hearted. See strong-willed Americans with this GrouponLive deal.

The Scouting Report
As the Triple-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, the Sky Sox slug their way into the 2014 season with a forward-looking roster of baseball’s future stars. In their first homestand, the Sky Sox will have their hands full, as the Round Rock Express comes to town after posting a winning record last year. Opening weekend brings a slate of festive promotions to Security Service Field including a post-game fireworks display on Friday, which will light up the night sky and help guide home run balls back into the park.
Colorado Springs Sky Sox
At 6,531 feet above sea level, Security Service Field is the highest professional ballpark in the United States. It was built in 1988 on the edge of Colorado Springs, and, in August 2012, it welcomed its six millionth fan through the turnstiles. This feat of fandom was but a dream in 1903, though, when the Sky Sox—then the Sacramento Solons—became a charter member of the Pacific Coast League. In 1961, the Solons became the Islanders and relocated to Honolulu, where the franchise remained until 1988, the year it finally moved to Colorado, and the year Pikes Peak began mysteriously sprouting foul poles.
Upon arriving in its new city, the franchise adopted the Sky Sox moniker—a tip of the cap to the Sky Sox of the 1950s, who played in the Western League as an affiliate of the Chicago White Sox. The modern-day Sky Sox have been the Triple-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies since 1993, and in 2011, the team earned the nod as Triple-A Organization of the Year courtesy of Baseball America.
