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
On Friday, May 9, the Rascals open another season of Frontier League hardball with a home game against the Wichita Wingnuts. After a 50–46 campaign last season, the Rascals look to build on their winning ways as they pursue the franchise’s second league championship and their sixth winning season in seven years. Returning stars, including third-baseman Steve Carillo and closer Gabriel Shaw, will lead the 2014 roster on their path to sandlot glory.
River City Rascals
The River City Rascals know how to make the most of an opportunity. In 2010, the team advanced to its second-straight Frontier League Championship series, where, in the third match-up, starting pitcher Josh Lowey stayed on the mound until a downpour suspended play in the fourth inning. The game spilled over to the next day, and Lowey—fully rested and rehydrated from the rain—finished the complete game by retiring all 15 batters in the last five innings. For his performance, Lowey earned series MVP and had his throwing arm framed, and the Rascals claimed their first title as a member of the Frontier League a couple days later. That 2010 championship season was part of three consecutive playoff berths for the Rascals, including 2011’s stunning record in which they finished 41 wins above the .500 mark.
