Decision on Jackie Robinson West ringer charges could come Wednesday

The evidence is strong that the 2014 American Little League champion team from Chicago's South Side, Jackie Robinson West, was in fact a regional all-star team, rather than a bunch of boys from a rough neighborhood. JRW was honored with a parade through Chicago that ended with a rally in Grant Park--and they were the guests of President Obama in the White House.

But the kids appears to be oblivious cheaters--courtesy of adults who forgot that youth sports is supposed to be about building character.

A decision from Little League International on the JRW championship could come as early as Wednesday.

On Da Tech Guy blog in December, I wrote about the controversy: Is race protecting Jackie Robinson West Little Leaguers from ringer allegations?
