DECATUR, IL. (WAND-TV) -- The Eisenhower baseball team is playing for a unique cause this season. 

They're honoring the Decatur Police Department all season long, with a special focus on one officer each month of the season. 

Beyond that, the players are also learning what it means to serve their community.

While the young team that's learning more about the game of baseball plays small ball on the field, they're learning how to hit home runs off the diamond as well.
