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
When the Staten Island Yankees take the field against their rivals the Brooklyn Cyclones in early July, it'll be more than a contest to claim the better borough. In their pursuit of a seventh New York-Penn League title, the Baby Bombers look to maintain the domination they achieved against the Cyclones in June, handily winning both games.
Serving as a launching pad for the Yankee organization's brightest young stars, Staten Island already boasts an impressive list of alumni who have gone on to impact major-league teams' backyard wiffle-ball games. As the short-season action heats up throughout July, fans can score promotional giveaways such as bobbleheads on July 19 and pink jerseys on July 21.
Staten Island Yankees
In 1999, as New York City’s first minor-league baseball team, the Staten Island Yankees adopted the name of one of MLB's most successful franchises. Since that time, the Baby Bombers have lived up to their big-league affiliate's iconic status, winning six New York-Penn League championships—including an initial title in just their second year.
But perhaps fittingly for a city such as New York, that commanding run has also included some bizarre moments. In 2008, for instance, the Yankees' ambidextrous pitcher Pat Venditte found himself in a dual of a different sort with Brooklyn Cyclones switch-hitter Ralph Henriquez. More than able but less than willing, neither player would pick a side—leading to the formation of a new official rule for such situations. Perhaps just as strange, the team never even got to celebrate that first championship in a home stadium, since Richmond County Bank Ballpark wasn't completed until the next year. Today it stands, though, with clear views just past center field of the Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty waving her foam finger.
