Since when do grown people follow a Little League team as if they were in majors? When a team as extraordinary as Jackie Robinson West comes around, which is a rare thing, indeed.
The mayor's office today announced that a parade and rally will be held on Wednesday to celebrate the team's U.S. Championship in the Little League World Series. The celebration starts at 9am with a rally at Jackie Robinson Park, 10540 S Morgan Park St. The parade, which starts at 10am, leaves from the park and follows this route: north on Aberdeen to 105th, east on 105th to Halsted, north on Halsted from 105th to 35th Street, east on 35th Street to Indiana, north on Indiana to 31st Street, merging into northbound Michigan Ave to Randolph. Another rally will be held at 11am in Millennium Park.
