Without baseball, down-and-out ballplayers are forced to search for menial sideshow work as mercenary piñata demolishers or dunking-booth beanballers. Watch them put their skillsets to more exciting ends with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get a lower-box seat tournament pass at the 77th Annual National Baseball Congress World Series, to be played at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium in Wichita, July 30–August 13 (a $150 value).
The NBC World Series hosts an annual two-week competition between the 32 best semipro baseball teams of the association's participating leagues before crowning one squad as the reigning national powerhouse. MLB stars from Satchel Paige to Lance Berkman have appeared in the event; last year's champions, the Liberal Bee Jays, take the top seed to battle against teams such as the Jayhawk League's Derby Twins and El Dorado Broncos and the Walter Johnson League's Park City Rangers. Watch as future stars sharpen their strikeout pitches and celebratory home-run cartwheels from the comfy vantage point of lower-box seating in Lawrence-Dumont Stadium.
