A former Chicago-area little leaguer talks about the recent Little League World Series scandal
Around 1999, the mayor of Dolton wanted to put a golf course where our baseball fields were. Eventually we couldn't fight them anymore and they tore down the fields. They were supposed to build a golf course but 16 years later there's still not a thing there. Anyways, so this is a league of 500 kids, they split us up into two different locations on different sides of town with two fields. We went from five fields to four.
