VINELAND, NJ - Baseball is the perfect game. Ninety feet to first base. Just a foot shorter or longer and the entire history of the game would change.

Our fourth grade class investigates the majesty of the diamond, the roar of the crowd, the blunders of the game, and the numbers that make baseball each year.

This project is our way of giving back just a bit of ourselves to the boys of summer. We have chronicled how to score this beautiful game and what we have learned along the way. In addition, we have used our scorecards to generate two projects: statistics to help determine who the best players are and news stories of the games we have scored.
