JERSEY CITY - Players from the Jersey City/Pershing Field RBI (Reviving Baseball in the Inner-Cities) program are headed to Minnesota to compete in the RBI World Series.

The young players were called at the last minute to attend due to a New York team's inability to field the team that was originally submitted.

The 15-and-under and 18-and-under teams will face off against a team from Atlanta. The game will be held at the home of the Minnesota Twins baseball club.
