Misremembering

Posted on February 11, 2015

Rahm, JRW and Jesse too! A few months back, allegations were made that the feel good story of the year, the Jackie Robinson West Little League Baseball World Series run, was a fraud. We found those allegations pretty compelling at the time because of the evidence put forward. However, we weren’t surprised when they didn’t really go anywhere.

Fast forward to today and word broke that, yep, they cheated by assembling a team of ringers:

“Little League officials said in December that they had reviewed the roster and found no residency violations. But citing “new information,” they met Tuesday in Williamsport, Pa., and decided that Jackie Robinson West knowingly used “a falsified boundary map” to include players who lived outside the team’s borders.

Little League’s decision means the national title now goes to the team from Las Vegas that Jackie Robinson West defeated in the U.S. championship game. The Jackie Robinson team also will have to vacate all wins from the 2014 Little League World Series tournament, including its Great Lakes regional title.

In addition to voiding all of the team’s wins, team manager Darold Butler has been suspended from Little League activity and Michael Kelly has been removed as administrator of Illinois District 4.”

And? Didn’t Rahm use the same sort of boundary residency map when he was running for mayor last time?

More here, plus the usual dog whistle excuse by the usual suspects here.

Keep it short and to the point. Name calling and similar stupidity will be deleted. If you insist on writing several paragraphs, start your own blog.

    What happened in 2004 that made the murder rate drop from 600 to 450 and pretty much stay there?
    Sorry I’m off topic but I can’t get the email button on the top of the page to work.

    They installed a bunch of those blue light cameras and adopted some of NYCs crime fighting methods. Apparently it made a large difference.

    Anyone know a motive for the very deliberate shooting of the 13 year-old the other day?

      Not sure, but my guess would be either disrespecting some thug, being on the wrong turf, maybe just in the wrong place at the wrong time or not axing the local thugs if it was OK to breathe the air.
      All very valid points for shooting someone in the hood.
