No player on the best baseball team in Chicago can see a PG-13 movie without their parents.

The kids from the Jackie Robinson West Little League are the first team from Chicago to qualify for the Little League World Series, and the city is pretty excited about it. 

According to the Chicago Tribune, Jackie Robinson West's first LLWS game had better TV ratings than the average Cubs or White Sox game. Their win over Lynwood, Wash., drew a 2.4 rating (about 70,000 viewers) in Chicago, while the average audience for a Cubs game is 1.5, and 1.4 for the White Sox. 

Let's just hope these kids aren't effected by the Curse of the Billy Goat.
