    Is Jackie Robinson West Being Robbed of its National Little League Championship?

    in Women

     Many people are outraged at the decision of the International Little League organization to strip Jackie Robinson West of its National Championship title based on allegations that the team violated rules related to the boundaries in which team members should live. This decision came at the incessant urging of Chris Janes, Vice President of the Evergreen Park Athletic Association, who charged that a JRW team member lived in a suburb of Chicago and was not an inner city resident. Chris Janes is Coach of the Evergreen Park Little League Team, which suffered a humiliating loss of 43-2 against JRW during the Sectional Playoffs, and of course JRW went on to compete for and win the National Championship. So, are we seeing, according to Chris Janes' accusation, a team that deliberately schemed, lied and cheated to get to the top? Or are we seeing, according to JRW supporters, an immature adult who is lacking in good sportsmanship and is unable to graciously accept defeat? Is the Jackie Robinson West team being robbed of its rightfully earned National Little League Championship Title? Will this case end up in court? What do you think should happen?

    Jackie Robinson West Still Our Champs! Supporters Fight To Restore The Title

    in Women

    The supporters of The Jackie Robinson West League Team are fighting for the return of the championship title, based on unfair behavior of the adults involved in seeking a means to disqualify the children based on boundaries unknown to the children or their parents. Issues of racial discrimination in funding of park district and school sports programs in African American communities have arisen. Chris Janes, Vice President of the Evergreen Park Athletic Association and coach of the Evergreen Park team that lost 43-2 to JRW, checked parents license plates, utility bills and voter registration records trying to find some type of impropriety. What's wrong with that behavior? What is it teaching our children regarding maturity, integrity, losing with grace and displaying good sportsmanship? Contrary to the public accusations, no boundaries were defined for the parents whose children played on the team. What should be done to restore the dignity and respect to the team, the parents and the coaches?
