For the Labor Day matinee at Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs honored the LLWS U.S. champion Jackie Robinson West team! The team was given a tour of the clubhouse and ran a victory lap on the warning track. Before the game, the kids took the field at their respective positions, interacted with various Cubs players and head coach Darold Butler threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

JRW then lead the seventh-inning stretch. So awesome.
Cubs players also donned Jackie Robinson West jerseys in warmups before the game. Nice touch.
This is one of the many stops for JRW, with Disney World up next.
