Cincinnati Police organize baseball camp for kids

CINCINNATI (Deborah Dixon) -- Hitting, catching, throwing and talk of teamwork were all part of this summer baseball camp organized by Cincinnati Police and the Cincinnati Steam.

Some of the little talks were about big things, such as having a plan of what to do if someone approaches you about doing drugs, and lessons for life. How to introduce yourself, shake hands and make eye contact.

Organizers wanted diversity, not just racial but economic children from different neighborhoods going to different schools.

Children who have a lot, those who don't, kids who go to public school or private, new athletic shoes or old ones, here it doesn't matter.

Police Captain Russ Neville said, "Watching them come in the first day sitting with kids from different neighborhoods on day one walking with someone they hadn't met until this camp"

Someday when these children have to make a choice, or introduce themselves, they might remember what they learned here at character camp...Oh, I mean baseball camp.
