I live in Chicago for a number of years and one of my favorite little league baseball teams was Jackie Robinson West, the championship Chicago little league championship team. According to Chicago Tribune, Jackie Robinson West, is cutting ties with the Little League to join the Babe Ruth League. The move came about after the team was stripped of its Little League World Series U.S. title in February after team leaders were accused of breaking rules to allow players from outside district boundaries to complete on the JRW championship squad. The South Side youth team will play this season in the Cal Ripken Division of the Babe Ruth League, a team spokesman tell the Tribune.
