"it's really hot. we always got to stick our heads out the window. the only time we get that much air is when we're on the highway. i would like to stay on the bus everyday, that's how much
history that bus has." the monarchs have their own link to history ... their team is named for the kansas city monarchs, the negro league team where robinson started, in the city that hosted this year's all-star game. that's what inspired little league coach steve bandura to organize this summer's tour. "we're getting so much love everywhere we stop, which would have been a little bit different in 1947 i'm sure, so that just shows really how far we've come." their last stop is cooperstown, new york, where they'll attend the baseball hall of fame induction ceremony. instead of reading about history, the monarchs are living it. sarah hoye a cnn a& washington. adam scott winning the open championship seemed like a form. formality...and the orioles had a 4-run lead in the 9th. one of them collapsed under pressure...find out who... next in sports.
