A South Side Little League team that flirted with history celebrated Saturday night.

Players, parents and fans from the Jackie Robinson West Little League team got together for a season-ending party.

The team was one game away from becoming the first all-African-American team from the city to qualify for the Little League World Series in 30 years.

Despite their loss in the regional championship last weekend, the 12- and 13-year-old players all got trophies and memories to last a lifetime.
