ELMHURST, Illinois (CBS) — The Elmhurst Youth Baseball team was eliminated from the Great Lakes Regionals – not quite making Williamsport into the Little League World Series.
But that didn’t stop the city of Elmhurst from honoring the team on Tuesday.
At a meeting Tuesday night, the Elmhurst City Council declared Tuesday “Elmhurst 12U Little League Day.”
Players were on hand to take pictures with Mayor Scott Levin and their special proclamation.
They then celebrated at Doc’s Victory Pub, where fans cheered them on throughout the season.
