Chicago's Jackie Robinson West All-Stars Are Proclaimed Heroes

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff,"  Chicago's Little League team inspires the city and beyond. CNN's Michaela Pereira reports.

Although the Jackie Robinson West All-Stars lost to South Korea on Sunday,  fans and the nation alike are calling their run nothing short of historic.

On Tuesday, supporters waited on line for hours at a Dicks Sporting Goods store in the city to buy out the team's official national championship shirt.

One hundred percent of the net proceeds from the collector's item, around $240,000 dollars, will go to the baseball program.

A welcome parade kicks off this morning for the young hometown heroes.
