It’s celebration day for the Jackie Robinson West All-Stars. Chicago is holding a rally in Jackie Robinson Park Wednesday morning and is hosting a parade for the National Champions winding from Chicago’s South Side to downtown, ending at Millennium Park on the city’s lakefront in a final rally. The all-African American team, hailing from the city’s South Side won the U.S. championship in the Little League World Series before losing Sunday’s world championship game to South Korea. Later tonight, a fireworks display off of Navy Pier will be dedicated to the team and their achievements.
