In whole, you may see me in the competition, or on the street.

Remove my front part, you may see me in the body, or on the lawn.

Remove my rear part, you may see me in the prison, or in the grocery.

Remove my middle part, you may see me in the sea, or on the stage.

Remove my middle part again, you may see me in the baseball game, or in the university.

Who/What am I?

Hint 1:

Chances to see in places(based on my thoughts :P):

competition: LOW to HIGH, positive correlate to competition schedule.
street: LOW, but vary in cities or countries.

body: VERY HIGH.
lawn: MEDIUM.

prison: HIGH.
grocery: LOW, but vary in locations.

sea: MEDIUM.
stage: MEDIUM.

baseball game: LOW to MEDIUM.
university: HIGH.

Hint 2:

The answer could be a noun or an adjective. Also the answer has 2 main meanings which are almost on the contrary.

We'll see where this goes...

My guess is:

BADASS

In whole, you may see me in the competition, or on the street.

You could be a BADASS competitor or a gangster

Remove my front part, you may see me in the body, or on the lawn.

You have an ASS and a donkey could be on the lawn

Remove my rear part, you may see me in the prison, or in the grocery.

BAD people go to prison and they could rob grocery stores?

Remove my middle part, you may see me in the sea, or on the stage.

BADASS = BASS like a sea bass or a bass guitar

Remove my middle part again, you may see me in the baseball game, or in the university.

BADASS = BS like a bachelor of science or blown save in baseball

Answer to clue #2

Badass in a noun and adjective. A badass is someone who is good or you could have a literal bad ass (flat/lumpy) XD

    $\begingroup$ I'm hoping you're right on this. For the lawn part, maybe it refers to people sitting down (because I don't imagine donkeys having a medium probability of being present). $\endgroup$ – JS1 Oct 4 at 20:18
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, great job! The grocery may have more "expired" or "defective" products compared to the supermarket, and more the remote is the chance may be higher. @JS1 the donkeys and sitting down both counts on the prob., so I give it MEDIUM :P Anyway just my thoughts...(I know that it may vary in different environments or cultures) $\endgroup$ – Conifers Oct 5 at 1:36

I found something that sort of fits:

In whole, you may see me in the competition, or on the street.

BASKETBALLS (basketball competition, street ball)

Remove my front part, you may see me in the body, or on the lawn.

basketBALLS (balls of feet, Wimbledon or lawn bowling)

Remove my rear part, you may see me in the prison, or in the grocery.

BASKETballs (laundry baskets, grocery baskets)

Remove my middle part, you may see me in the sea, or on the stage.

BASketballS (BASS) (sea bass, bass guitar)

Remove my middle part again, you may see me in the baseball game, or in the university.

BasketballS (BS) (Blown Save or Bs as in Balls/Strikes, Bs as in B grades)

$\endgroup$
