Jackie Robinson West Player Teaches Handshake to South Korean Opponent


After a heartbreaking 8-4 loss to South Korea, Marquis Jackson from Jackie Robinson West, taught a South Korean player a handshake while shaking hands at the end of the game.

Great show of sportsmanship by this young Chicagoan after a tough loss. The Little League World Series is all about bringing young baseball players together and competing in a tournament of class, sportsmanship, and pride. We see all three of these attributes here as this Jackson performs a class act move and shares a bonding moment with a player from South Korea. Hats off to JRW for a phenomenal run at a championship. The City of Chicago, along with the whole country, is proud of the way you represented your city and your country.
