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.
