    This goes to show that everything about my side of town isn't all bad, and negative. Somehow the media don't think this is news worthy, coming from a place where many died over a weekend.

    Peace!

    Its all over the news...in Chicago anyway..all over.

    Little league doesnt get a lot of national press year to year anymore...there is a US champion every single year. in other words Dallas Texas dont give a **** about little league unless the are in it.

    It did get picked up by a small network you may have heard of...its called espn.

    it really is a box of crap .......
    JACKIE ROBINSON WEST LITTLE LEAGUE TEAM SHOWS THAT RACISM STILL EXIST NOT ONLY IN CHICAGO, BUT ALL OVER AMERICA.........I FEEL SORRY FOR THOSE KIDS....ITS NOT THEY FAULT, THEY STILL CHAMPS.....
    Little League Baseball has stripped the U.S. championship from Chicago-based Jackie Robinson West and suspended its coach for violating a rule prohibiting the use of players who live outside the geographic area that the team represents, it was announced Wednesday.
    Jackie Robinson West must vacate wins from the 2014 Little League Baseball International Tournament -- including its Great Lakes Regional and United States championships.
    AP Photo/Charles Rex ArbogastThe Jackie Robinson West Little League team was ruled to have used players from outside its local area by recruiting players from neighboring districts.
    The team's manager, Darold Butler, has been suspended from Little League activity, and Illinois District 4 administrator Michael Kelly has been removed from his position.
    The organization found that Jackie Robinson West used a falsified boundary map and that team officials met with neighboring Little League districts in Illinois to claim players and build what amounts to a superteam.
    As a result, the United States championship has been awarded to Mountain Ridge Little League from Las Vegas.
    "Quite honestly, we had to do this," Little League International president and CEO Stephen D. Keener told ESPN on Wednesday. "We had no choice. We had to maintain the integrity of the Little League program. ... As painful as this is, it's a necessary outcome from what we finally have been able to confirm.
    Little League World Series Controversies
    1975
    : Following Taiwan's fourth consecutive championship in 1974, Little League bars foreign teams while it works to strengthen rules against year-round practices and out-of-district players.
    1976: International teams again allowed into the World Series. A team from Tokyo wins the tournament.
    1992: Zamboanga City Little League, Philippines, forfeits World Series title after admitting to using eight players from outside the Zamboanga City league's boundaries, and roster also had six players who were overage. Title reverts to Long Beach (Calif.) Little League.
    1997: Little League announces it would strictly enforce residency rules. As a result, Taiwan withdraws from tournament.
    2001: Rolando Paulino Little League, Bronx, New York, forfeits its third-place finish after records show that pitcher Danny Almonte (14) was too old to play, lived outside league boundaries and didn't participate in the required number of games before the international tournament. Almonte's perfect game is also erased.
    2002: Little League officials investigate charges that the Harlem Little League team, which won the Mid-Atlantic Regional and advanced to the Little League World Series, used players from outside league boundaries. Harlem league officials produce documents confirming their residency.
    2015: Little League International strips Jackie Robinson West of its U.S. title after determining it had falsified boundaries to field ineligible players.
    The national organization said it was Kelly's responsibility to verify player eligibility based on player information that is gathered and signed by the league president, player agent and team manager.

    Something smells funny about this. This is the 3rd investigation into this. The previous two were found to be without merit. Sounds like a kangaroo court to me.

    The coaches intentially and full knowingly changed the boundaries on the boundaries to take players from other organizations, and have been doing so for years.

    It's not racism..it cheating.

    If the shoe was on the other foot and I was discovered that JRW lost against a team which had kids that didn't belong on the team how would you feel then?
