The Little League Team From Chicago Shouldn’t Be Punished
I disagree with Little League International for stripping Jackie Robinson West of the national title that the Chicago team won last summer after an investigation revealed it had falsified boundaries to field ineligible players.
I can understand punishing the coach and any other adult who broke the rules. The kids just played the game. They won the game. The kids on the team didn’t know anything about the boundaries and shouldn’t be punished for something the coach did.
The league has suspended the team from any Little League tournament privileges until new leadership is found. The team has maintained that no cheating occurred. Read more here.
