CHICAGO — Jackie Robinson West‘s epic Little League adventure came up one win short of a world title as the Chicago club lost 8-4 to Seoul, South Korea, on Sunday in the Little League World Series championship game at historic Lamade Stadium in Williamsport, Pa.
UPDATE FROM RIKYRAH:
From the moment these young men stepped off the plane from Williamsport, Chicago has embraced them with love. You can see that the young men were shocked by the reception they received at the airport, and today there was a parade for them, beginning at the baseball diamond on the South Side, where it all began for them and it wound up downtown in Millenium Park.
