(AP) — Citing “new information,” Little League International officials met Tuesday to discuss whether Jackie Robinson West, the Little League World Series national championship team from Chicago’s South Side, added top suburban players in violation of residency rules.
Spokesman Brian McClintock said the organization’s charter committee was meeting to discuss “possible resolutions” regarding the team and that a final decision would likely be made this week. He declined to discuss if the team was in danger of being stripped of its title.
Late last year, the organization said it was confident that there were no violations of residency regulations after investigating allegations made by an official from a suburban Chicago league that some of Jackie Robinson West’s players live in suburbs with already-established Little League teams. It said it would reopen the investigation if necessary.
