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 Groupon.

The Scouting Report
Though it's only a few weeks old, the 2013 season is already a record-setting campaign for the Fort Myers Miracle. The team overwhelmed their opponents from opening day, building a 12-game win streak that tied the franchise record for consecutive wins and post-win pizza parties. Even more impressive is this comes at the start of the season, demolishing the Miracle's previous best start of 9–0 set in 1994. Their success on the field is no fluke after outscoring their opponents by 22 runs through their first 13 games behind a pair of Miracle sluggers batting at over .375.
Fort Myers Miracle
Like the Fort Myers Palms and the Miami Hustlers, Marlins, and Orioles before them, the Fort Myers Miracle continue a tradition of minor league baseball in South Florida that dates back to 1926. Under the stewardship of partial owners Jimmy Buffet and Bill Murray, the Miracle is now a Class A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins that faces off against rival Florida State League teams in front of crowds of up to 8,500 in Hammond Stadium. In 2014, the Miracle collected 87 wins and claimed their first FSL title since moving to the Sunshine State in 1992. Even before that, though, the team experienced much success, producing players who have gone on to play in the FSL all-star game, the major leagues, and community theater productions of The Sandlot.
