Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

“Once again the Jackie Robinson West All-Stars continue to make Chicago proud. I was proud to join more than 600 of their fans this afternoon at Jackie Robinson Park to watch them begin their run towards history. While it is only the first round, they have already inspired the entire City of Chicago with their athleticism and their determination to succeed. They continue to remind us what all of our children can achieve when we invest in them and when we believe in them. Congratulations to Coach Butler and this very determined group of young men.”
