Watch party Sunday for Jackie Robinson West game

CHICAGO (AP) — Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Chicago Park District are teaming up to host a second watch party for a city team that's in the Little League World Series.

Jackie Robinson West will play at 1 p.m. Sunday in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. They'll be taking on the Mountain Ridge Little League from Las Vegas, Nevada.

Jackie Robinson West is comprised of 11- and 12-year-olds from the South and Southwest side of Chicago. The team won its opening World Series game Thursday 12-2 against Lynwood, Washington.

The watch party will be held at Jackie Robinson Park where the game will be shown live.

Mayor Emanuel says the entire city is behind the team, and "can't wait to cheer them on again on Sunday."
