The Pointers stopped by kindergarten-sixth grade classrooms to read stories, answer questions, eat lunch, play games at recess and even sign a few autographs for the students. Many of the books were about baseball, including stories about Jackie Robinson and Lou Gehrig. The Pointers also stressed the importance of practicing reading every day, just like practicing sports.
This is the fourth year UWSP baseball has visited McDill Elementary.
