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
As five-time National Baseball Congress champions, the Pilots swoop into the 2013 season with a double-header on June 9. Each summer, some of the top collegiate ballplayers from all corners of the country descend upon the Last Frontier for the Alaska Baseball League, sharpening their skills with two full months of games before heading back to their respective schools to be cryogenically frozen until next season. This season's schedule features annual traditions, including the Summer Solstice Showdown against the Anchorage Bucs on June 22, plus newly established events, such as the third-annual home-run derby on July 21 and July 16's Mayor's Cup, in which the Glacier Pilots and the Bucs face off in a hometown showdown.
Anchorage Glacier Pilots
Having adopted the nickname of Alaskan aviation innovator Bob Reeve, the Anchorage Glacier Pilots have had the state's history in their lifeblood since they first took the field in 1969. Over the years, the Pilots' rising collegiate stars have won the National Baseball Congress World Series—held in Wichita, Kansas—five times. Each game, up to 5,300 baseball fans can pack the stands at Mulcahy Stadium, which was built back in 1953 when every American was legally obligated to eat a whole apple pie during the seventh-inning stretch.
