Back straight, eyes focused: The pitch is cast toward home plate during the game among 7- to 9-year-olds from Berne-Knox-Westerlo and Greenville on May 20. “No score was kept that game. The girls are learning the basics of softball for now,” BKW Little League coach Chris Curvin wrote in an e-mail. “As usual, at that age, they improve so quickly, it has been a lot of fun. We were playing on the field we renovated with the Valley Cats early in the season. It came out great and has been the perfect middle ground now that we are playing Greenville. Best of all, the kids love it.”
