Throwing the ball is a great activity for kids. But, it's even better when the Baltimore Orioles are the ones you're throwing to.

Students from the Children's Guild and Monarch Academy were at the Cal Ripken Senior Memorial Stadium Youth Field on Friday.

The event was put on by the League of Dreams, which provides baseball experiences for children unable to compete in traditional leagues.

"So, to adapt the game so that everybody can play and have a good time, can't beat that, that's what every kid needs," said Andrew Ross, President and CEO Children's Guild.

The students were practicing baseball throwing, catching and batting skills with some Orioles players.
