(Chicago, IL) -- Thousands of people lined a parade route on Chicago's South Side Wednesday to greet the Jackie Robinson West team. The team rode in open trolleys and waved to fans along the way after returning from the Little League World Series as the U.S. Champs. The all-black Little League team won the U.S. bracket before losing Sunday's championship game to South Korea.
