STATEMENT FROM MAYOR RAHM EMANUEL ON TONIGHT’S JACKIE ROBINSON WEST WIN

“Tonight’s win underscores Jackie Robinson West’s unparalleled strength and resilience; I’ve said it before and I’ve said it again- never bet against Chicago’s kids. With their positive attitude and hard work, the All Stars and Coach Darold Butler have set a remarkable example for all of Chicago, and we as a City could not be prouder of them. I join all of Chicago in wishing them the best of luck tomorrow, and as evidenced by the watch parties that have drawn hundreds of Chicagoans, it’s safe to say the whole City will continue to root for them tomorrow.”
