rio, it was no accident that m-p-s picked ralph metcalfe school to kick off year round school this year. fox6's carl deffenbaugh takes us there to explain why. with the olympic march blaring through the morning air, students at ralph metcalfe school had their own version of the opening ceremonies. 'coming off of the positivity from the olympics, and the u.s. has been doing so well, it just keeps making me think, anything is possible for our young people. ' of a new year for milwaukee schools on a year-round schedule. after just about six weeks of summer break, metcalfe students - along with 10 other schools in the system, were back in the classroom. 'we are dedicating ourselves to improving attendance, achievement and outcomes for our students this year.' students go to school for the same number of days over the course of a year as students on a traditional schedule. the year-round schools have different breaks during the year to accommodate the shorter

to get them early so we dont have as much of a gap in the summertime, making sure that right away, as soon as august hits, theyre back in class ready to learn.' the olympic theme was especially appropriate at metcalfe. ralph metcalfe won a gold medal running with jesse owens in the 1936 berlin games. the marquette alum then went on to serve four terms in congress. 'this is someone who looks like our young people ... everyone thought that jesse owens couldnt do it, they thought ralph metcalfe couldnt do it, t and i want our young people to know that they can do it as well.' something to strive for, at the starting line of a new school year. carl deffenbaugh, fox6 news. adlib to weather although we're staying mostly sunny today, we're also starting

face too much violence in their young worlds. but brandon cruz goes beyond the game to show you a program--designed to not only keep kids away from that dangerous path... it's meant to teach them teamwork, perseverance ..and hope. "i'm in love with the sport." at milwk the passion for baseball shines through, especially when you see jonathan pinales out on the diamond. " it's a great sport. just in love with it actually. i actually started playing because of my little brother." his immediate family quickly grew, not from his bloodline, but from the bond he and his teammates in the "rbi" program of greater milwaukee have shared. "we always hang out with each other outside of baseball. like, half the team goes to riverside. so we see each other there, and play for the high school team. and then like on the weekends, if we don't have a tournament, we'll
11:52 am
in hanging out." they've been kicking it together for nearly a decade. along with pinales, max montgomery has been involved since its inception. "we grew up together and got a lot better as time went on because of our training. and the camps we went to." "rbi" stands for reviving baseball in inner cities and it's a major league baseball outreach program. miguel green started milwaukee's chapter. "we originally started 9 years ago. we had one team. that one team was a 15 u actually didn't really play a lot of baseball. now we have 6 travel teams. we have roughly 1000 kids in the milwaukee area that are in the rbi program." the teamwork that was developed has helped the players excel on the field. and it's done just as much, if not more, off of it. "it made me realize that never to give up. because i've given up a couple of times...... i was going to give up on baseball. i said, this ain't the right thing for me. then they just sat down and talked to me, like took me
11:53 am
say." "it helped me grow as a person, honestly, because the friends i made here. there's a lifetime of friends. school, coaches help you with it. you know, just the people you hang around with. they help you with every day problems. they help you get to games, you know get places you need to go. they really help you a lot in everything in life." "now i'm trying to take my talent down to clc which is college of lake county. so they actually opened a lot of doors for me to go to college." "now we have young men who are actually going to college off of baseball. ... so to see them grow up and now all of a sudden they're playing good baseball, they're getting good grades in school, and they're actually driving to the practice. it see them becoming adults, becoming successful people in their community." for pinales, before being part of rbi, success wasn't something he even thought about. "if i wasn't in this program, i would probably be on the streets over there somewhere like, joining a gang or something. " " when i was younger i would just say i was going to be a nobody, to be honest. now, realizing what the coaches put in to you, and great
11:54 am
you have like i don't think you want to lose that. so i'm just going to keep pursuing that goal." the goal of playing professionally is something many of these players aspire to. so when the brewers chose a former rbi player from chicago, corey ray, in the 1st round of the draft, these kids saw something special. "not many think that kids from these levels will make it. and to see someone like him make it, is really an achievement for him. it makes all of us believe that we can also i hope. like if, don't ever give up. he used to tell us that all the time. don't give up. and it actually paid off for him. so, that's what we're going to do. we're not giving up." and green isn't giving up either, as he sees something very special on this field as well. "so now when i see, i know i can look and see all these guys are doing well as far as in high school and middle school. it brings tears to my eyes. i'm very happy for the program."
