Chicago’s Little League heroes continue their winning streak.
Jackie Robinson West won 6-1 over a team from Texas Tuesday night to advance in the Little League World Series.
JRW plays again Thursday.
Mayor Emanule released a statement Tuesday night saying, ”The courage to persevere and the hard work displayed by Jackie Robinson West and Coach Darold Butler tonight and throughout this Series exemplifies the very best of what we hope from and for our children. In every neighborhood across Chicago tonight, people are coming together to cheer on this team because of their spirit, their positive attitude and their success on the field. I can’t wait to root on our All Stars when they take the field again on Thursday.”
