I still can’t believe this happened! The Jackie Robinson West Little League has been stripped of its U.S. Championship title.
Little League International said the this all stemmed from the use children who did not reside in the designated zone, which gave them an advantage against opponents.
Jackie Robinson West is an all-black team from Chicago’s South Side. They actually defeated female phenom Mo’ne Davis’ team en route to an appearance in the Little League World Series finals last summer. The team’s manager Butler has been suspended.
The controversy has social media in an uproar. What are your thoughts on this? Who is truly at fault? Should the kids suffer from the mistakes of the adults? Leave a comment on our Facebook page.
