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
For the Stockton Ports' offense, the early returns in the 2014 season have been positive—especially if you're a fan. In their first seven games, the Ports have belted nine home runs over the outfield walls, placing them among the California League's most powerful clubs. They've also received an offensive boost from the middle of the infield, as shortstop Daniel Robertson has gone 12-for-25 in his first six games, elevating himself to second in the entire league in batting average. Small sample sizes—like rubber cement that looks like pine tar—can be deceiving in baseball, but the Ports will look to continue their offensive outpouring as the season rumbles deeper into the summer.
The Stockton Ports have been a part of California baseball since before there was even a league. Players have been slinging pitches, swinging bats, and attempting to translate umpires' calls in the town of Stockton for more than a century. But it wasn't until 1941— when Minor League Baseball decided to plant roots in California—that the Ports became an official organization. The Ports jumped at the chance to join up, becoming one of the founding members of the newly created California League. Over the course of the team’s 63-year history, the Ports have won 11 championships, including one in 2008.
