CHICAGO -- United States Little League champion Jackie Robinson West of Chicago will throw out the first pitch and sing the seventh-inning stretch at Monday’s Chicago Cubs game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

The team will be honored before the game as they walk the warning track greeting fans and will meet the Cubs players during batting practice before throwing out the first pitch. Then they'll take in the game and sing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" during the seventh-inning stretch.

Jackie Robinson West won the U.S. championship at the Little League World Series last Saturday before losing to South Korea in the World Championship on Sunday. The city of Chicago held a parade and rally for them on Wednesday.
