The game of baseball teaches children discipline, focus, and even a little bit of physical science. This Spring 2015 season, the Harms Hawks played in the D.P.S. 5th and 6th grade league (since our school only goes up to 5th grade, our athletes were 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders). The games were played at Jayne Field and Peterson Playfield. The other schools that played in this league were Burton International, Pasteur, Munger, Shulze, and F.L.I.C.S. One of the purposes of this league is to expose elementary school children to the game so that once they are in high school, they know enough to be able to play competitively. The league is sponsored by Corageous Inc., a local athletic training facility that boasts an indoor running track, weight room, and, as might be expected, batting cages with pitching guns. The company also provides baseball equipment for the school teams. During practice, the coach goes through drills like fielding ground balls, turning double plays, and soft-toss batting practice.
