CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox announced Thursday that not only will the team honor the Jackie Robinson West Little League team Saturday, the team’s charity arm will donate $20,000 to the South Side league.

Jackie Robinson West won the United States title at the recently completed Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The Great Lakes Region representative lost in the international title game to South Korea.

The Little League team will be honored on the field Saturday before the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers. The second game is scheduled to start at 6:05 p.m.

Each Jackie Robinson West player will receive their own White Sox jersey with their number on it that is autographed by every White Sox player. Also, they each will get $100 worth of school supplies.

In addition, the team’s run in the 2014 Little League World Series will be recognized with a plaque at U.S. Cellular Field that will be unveiled next season.

The White Sox are encouraging all fans attending Saturday’s second game of the doubleheader to wear gold in honor of the Jackie Robinson West All-Stars.
