A group of young future major leaguers are currently on a bus tour around the country on the trip of a lifetime. The group of youngsters from Philadelphia are on the road after playing a team of Harlem Little League All-Stars on a historic, educational 22-day, 18-city tour.
Along the way, they will meet Major League All-Stars and be introduced to the history that led to the integration of Major League Baseball by Jackie Robinson and other pioneers like Larry Doby, the second player from the Negro Leagues to join Robinson, Monte Irvin, Don Newcombe and Roy Campanella.
Before returning home, the youngsters will attend the Major League Baseball All-Star Game and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City. –Howie Evans
