CHICAGO -- Chicago Cubs President Theo Epstein spoke at the Millennium Park event celebrating the Jackie Robinson West All-Stars.
He thanked the league for its legacy.
"Tens of thousands of kids you have impacted. You haven't just waited around for kids to sign up for baseball. You've gone into the schools. You've gotten kids off the streets. You've gotten them playing the game and learning valuable lessons about competition and about life. And that all manifested with this glorious championship" Epstein said.
