The Cubs took the local heroes into its dugout and clubhouse during batting practice, while the big leaguers all wore the team's yellow and black camouflage uniforms, with #42 on the back in honor of namesake Jackie Robinson.

The players of the Jackie Robinson West team have been the toast of the town since their return, with a parade leading to a rally at the city's Pritzker Pavilion last week, courtesy of the Chicago White Sox.

The jerseys worn by the Cubs will be auctioned off after today's game with the proceeds going toward the Jackie Robinson West Little League.
