Reality Check: Little League Team That Met

Take note! This is what SHOULD happen when you're caught cheating ...
U.K.'s Daily Mail reports:
In a stunning Wednesday announcement that came months after Jackie Robinson West captured the attention of the country and the hearts of its hometown, the baseball organization said it also found that after the boundaries were changed, league officials went to surrounding leagues to convince them to go along with what they'd done.

'As painful as it is, we feel it is a necessary decision to maintain the integrity of the Little League program. No team can be allowed to attempt to strengthen its team by putting players on their roster that live outside their boundaries.'
The team's manager, Darold Butler, has been suspended from Little League activities, according to the statement.
The team beat Las Vegas in the U.S. Championship, 7-5, to advance to the World Series where they faced Seoul, South Korea. The Nevada team had beaten Jackie Robinson West earlier in the tournament, 13-2.
