Whether the hitter is a teammate doesn't seem to matter to the 20 children on the field -- they cheer either way. Neither does it matter to the players that seven of them have Down's Syndrome.

Crowds cheering. Signs waving. Fans dressed in their favorite team jerseys, hair dyed a rainbow of colors in a show of support for their squads. Feet stomping.

Teams from all over Southern California competed in the decathlon two weekends ago, with Burbank High School, notably, finishing third and qualifying for the state competition.
