Jackie Robinson Little League Stripped of 2014 World Series Title


jrllEarly this morning ESPN broke the news that the Jackie Robinson West Little League team has been stripped of the 2014 title. There has been an ongoing investigation regarding the players residency. It has been determined that there were players out of the district that played a vital part in winning the series championship. Interesting enough the allegations were initially found untrue and case was deemed closed. The Little League International set down with rival Little League presidents of the Chicago District 4 and reopened case. After further investigation the board changed it’s tune which lead to the ruling.

jrll2Jackie Robinson West Little League is an All-Black team that won the title in story book fashion and won over many of fans in their quest for the title. Unfortunately, the end of the story is not a Disney ending. The team has to vacate their wins and give the title to the Las Vegas team they defeated. More questions need to be answered regarding the re-opening of the case and why did it take so long to find the kids were out of the district? Stay Tuned!
