PHILADELPHIA - A youth baseball team whose appearance in the Little League World Series drew it a wide following got a champion's treatment with a parade in downtown Philadelphia.
Hundreds of office workers and city residents lined a major thoroughfare Wednesday to cheer on the Taney Dragons and their star female pitcher, Mo'ne Davis, who made it onto the cover of Sports Illustrated.
The Dragons represented the mid-Atlantic region in the World Series. They won their first two games before being eliminated by eventual U.S. champion Jackie Robinson West from Chicago and the Las Vegas' Mountain Ridge.
Mo'ne became the first female pitcher to win a game in the series' 68-year history.
Parade-watcher Jerome Belo said the team did a great job bringing the city together.
