      Hmm interesting comments by non-educated citizens. Congrats to the Jackie Robinson West team for your accomplishments. With all the negativity in the world at this time; no matter the color of skin all positive aspects should be celebrated. If you don’t have anything nice to say please keep your mouth shut.

    These kids are inspiring other inner city kids their age to choose a positive path – a sense of belonging with teammates instead of gang members – national recognition through sports instead of violence. These kids are leading by example and the families in these violence-plagued communities finally have something positive to celebrate – but douchebags like Rocky & Danny Dimes would rather put a negative spin on it. Just shut up and let them be proud of their children. America will be a safer place if kids like these keep setting examples like this.

    The Little League World series is televised EVERY year. It’s not about black or white. It’s about the accomplishment of a little league team. Chicago celebrated this win just like other cities in the past. Get over it!!!!Rocky, Hater and others like you.
