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 GroupoLive deal.

The Scouting Report
Competing in the Texas Collegiate League, the Marshals showcase up-and-coming college talent in a festive, family-friendly environment. Between June and August this season, the Marshals will host more than 20 home games at Pasqua Field, highlighted by several match-ups against last year's top team, the Brazos Valley Bombers. Instead of spending the entire offseason debating whether the foul lines should be made of powdered sugar, the team utilized its time by signing collegiate stars from across the country. That list includes versatile infielder Mason Mantle—a distant relative of the New York legend. Off the field, families can enjoy plenty of entertainment, too, including contests and prizes geared toward kids.
As a founding member of the Texas Collegiate League, the Texas Marshals have groomed college players for futures in pro baseball since 2004. The Marshals travel throughout the state each summer, playing a minor-league-style schedule while maintaining their NCAA eligibility. The players follow the same rules as minor leaguers, using the same equipment and making sure every entrance song is set in a minor key.
