CORRECTION: at 10:33 I say that a player was claimed by Lansing MICHIGAN.... I misspoke and meant to say Lansing ILLINOIS.... still out of district but very different from Lansing Michigan which is in a completely different state. My apologies.

@MrGflash I'm glad that you agree with my statement " Black racism is so pervasive in the USA that many people are desensitized to it. That's deplorable." . But I would have appreciated it even more if you had add a few words of your own to criticize the rise of black racism .

It's always racially motivated. 😒 No what was racially motivated was the hype and love the kids got that other Little Leaguers didn't and don't get. I rooted for them and love seeing black Americans play baseball since they're almost gone from the game completely nowadays. But there was no conspiracy against this team. Just shitty adults behind the scenes.

I'm so sick of people defending these kids as if they didn't know. You give them no credit, and treat them as simpleton. All of a sudden I'm playing 10 miles away when everyone else I used to play with and live on my street have to play for my old team. Any asshole with a Parkinson's grip on logic could deduce that.

I'm all for punishing cheaters, but stripping the kids of the title is a bit much. Idk ANYTHING about baseball, this just came up in my recommended, but I would assume there is some way to expunge the names of the perpetrators from the title, while keeping the kids on it.

They’re not the first team to be stripped in the little league World Series. A Bronx team got stripped for cheating as well. I’m glad that they got stripped because I played little league and know the rules from back in the day and it ruined the game for kids.

Not that I actually blame the kids for this happening because I do not. However are we believing the kids did not know where the other kids lived or went to school? I still remember playing baseball at 12 yrs old. Hell, I was practically an adult by that age and we had adult conversations. These kids definitely aware something was off unless they were being lied to by everyone around them. Their parents had to have known. Everyone involved knew. That's just how Little and many other organizations are structured and you know when somebody is from somewhere else.

Tons of teams do this every year. This is actually very common.
surprisinglyroomy 4 days ago
I actually did this for a couple years too when I played little league. Not to gain an advantage by being in a better league but because the ballpark was basically ran by my family for decades. So even though I lived in a neighboring town- because it was cheaper for my family, how could I not play in this league? We actually made it one win away from the LLWS, but don’t worry, I had since moved right down the street from the park at this point 😉

The biggest crime in all these cheating scandals is that the rightful team/individual who loses to the "juiced" team does not get to experience "the winning moment" that the cheating team receives. Covers of SI, calls from presidents, memorabilia/meeting celebs... all go to the cheaters. THAT'S the crime. My heart doesn't go to kids playing under corrupt parents/coaches. My heart goes to kids who DESERVE kudos but get an "oops" certificate in the mail a year later. Cheaters suck.

Yes, the adults screwed this up, but dont tell me the kids had no idea what was up and are all innocent. The kids know they are in the wrong league, trust me. twelve or 13 doesnt equal stupid. I have the perfect example...We had a rivalry with our nearest league. The kids in that league went to different schools because they lived in another area. That league had tons of talent. A kid that played with us for years, and rode our school bus to school, all of a sudden was not in our league anymore. He was playing for the rival league. He magically had an aunt who lived just over the line. He did not live with his aunt. His parents and aunt were complicit. Its not remotely reasonable to think the kid had no idea why he wasnt playing with his friends that he goes to school with anymore. He left because he wanted to be in the better league. He was pretty popular a guy except to the kids that played baseball. Its a tight community even at that age and he was an outcast because we all knew he left us.

The 8 kids from different districts who weren't eligible for that league, definitely knew they were playing for a team they weren't supposed to.. It wasn't their first season. They played in other leagues previously, and had to have some idea when their parents started driving them across town, or even from a different town altogether for practice and games.. They were most likely recruited.. The Kids who actually live in that district are the real victims, but that was only like 38% of the team.
MirMesh 6 days ago
As a soccer player, this makes no sense how this could be illegal, I see this as players playing in clubs, there’s literally kids who are recruited from other continents to play in clubs. Just because they live a bit farther away doesn’t mean these kids didn’t win the league using their athletic ability

It was can’t recruit players from out of your district to play if the boundaries weren’t approved. It’s pretty simple. Every organization is slow to approve things. It sucks but that’s how it is. They wouldn’t have won anything if another team did the same thing. The kids didn’t intentionally cheat but they don’t deserve the award. Cheating is cheating. They should have come out and asked for the league to be quicker at approving districts and such and then said thank you for the support but it looks like we shouldn’t have been able to play together “yet.” Then, one year later they’d still have a league and have a shot to win it all. When adults get emotional children lose. The kids could have learned a lesson instead they are dealt with this. That’s why you don’t blame others. You find the highest ground you can and shine. Great players and one is even going to be a star MLB player. No reason to claim a championship they didn’t earn. Move on and help make changes in your community. Stop suing people for dumb stuff.
