CHICAGO – Members of the Jackie Robinson West All Stars baseball team are campaigning to get their title back.

The team asked the congregation at Father Michael Pfleger’s Saint Sabina Church to write letters to Little League International, requesting that their title be restored.  It was revoked last month because of boundary violations.

Pfleger said what happened to the team was an incidence of racism.

He distributed pre-printed letters to church members during the offering.
