PressBox's second annual Best Of  is here, featuring more than 60 honorees, including best upset, best newcomer, best comeback, best surprise and much more.

Best Reason To Play

As if "Cup In Hand Kickball" wasn't reason enough, Volo City uses money it makes from its adult social sports leagues to fund free youth leagues in the community for kids ages 6-12 of all abilities.

Previously known as Baltimore Social, Volo City started with 16 people playing bocce in Federal Hill Park. It's since grown to include adult and youth leagues in eight cities and is on track to reach 200,000 participants this year.
