This will make your day. Watch losing Little League coach David Belisle's 'incredible journey' speech.

"Everybody heads up high, let’s talk for a moment here. Look, I gotta see your eyes, guys. There’s no disappointment in your effort. In the whole tournament, in the whole season, it’s been an incredible journey. Look at the score: 8-7, 12-10 in hits. It came to the last out, we didn’t quit."

Tears of sadness turn to tears of joy.

Caked in mud, Steven Di Naso and Grant Woods crouched in the cemetery trench they were clearing with trowels and gloved hands. They were searching for evidence of bodies — many from Chicago — that had been deliberately forgotten after one of the grisliest atrocities in labor history.

What actually happened on June 22, 1922, is the slaughter of 23 men in a wooded area near the city. It’s known as the Herrin Massacre, and we’re learning a lot about it.

"Now, 92 years later," Di Naso said a couple of days after emerging from the trenches, "it’s time to recognize it actually happened and who these men were and just rewrite the history on it. A lot of good came out of this."

The story is a great read. And when you’re done, have a look at our complete archives from 1922. We had 3 days of coverage here, here and here. The front pages follow:

Let’s talk about sex — and look at a photo of a palm tree.
They say there’s a study for everything. Well, now there’s one that examines the sexual behavior of women on vacation.Seriously.Some women who engaged in risky sexual behavior while traveling told a researcher that they felt freed from a sexual double standard at home, and hoped to “feel like a man”* by having a one-night stand — no emotional strings attached, according to a researcher with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Ladies, our question is this: Do your sexual habits change when you go on vacation?
*As a man, should I be insulted by that?? (@scottkleinberg)

The theme this week is refreshing, and few things in Chicago are more refreshing than a run through Crown Fountain. Thank you to @concorexhappiness2x for tagging this very refreshing shot #trib2014 for our theme. We’ll feature it today in our feed, on our blog and on our tumblr -scott

This is kind of hard to imagine, but it’s in a survey so we know it must be true.

A third of Americans have no retirement savings!

Whoa. That’s kind of scary, right?

But there’s more:

More than two-thirds of 18- to 29-year-olds have saved nothing for retirement, while 14 percent of people 65 and older have put nothing aside for retirement, Bankrate.com found.

What about you? How do your savings accounts and 401Ks and IRAs look?

On this date in 1886, despite a lack of evidence, 8 radical labor activists were found guilty in the Haymarket Riot.

A few months before, on May 4, 1886, at least eight people died after someone threw a homemade bomb at police during a labor protest near Haymarket Square - near Randolph and Des Plaines in what is today the West Loop.

Pictured is the front page from May 5, 1886, the day after the tragedy. Also pictured is a poster calling for revenge, portraits of the condemned and a map from the Chicago Tribune showing where it happened.

The Air & Water Show is over, and sadly it was cut short. But there are so many amazing photos using the #chiairwater2014 hashtag on Instagram, including these by @nick_ulivieri, @thecraighensel, @amyboylephoto and @jezibell (top to bottom).

Nick Ulivieri sent us a link to his Flickr collection of photos.
