I was quoted in a Chicago Tribune article on the Jackie Robinson West Little League eligibility violations. These violations led Little League International to strip the team of its 2014 US Championship. JRW was the hit of the summer with their great run in the Little League World Series. The team’s wins are being vacated for having “knowingly violated Little League International Rules and Regulations by placing players on their team who did not qualify to play because they lived outside the team’s boundaries.” (Little League International)
“Sports, boundaries and eligibility: a persistent issue” by Philip Hersh
Update: an earlier version of this post incorrectly stated that Mo’ne Davis played for Jackie Robinson West.

Please correct me if I am wrong but didn’t Mo’na Davis play for the Philly team? Not JRW….
Thanks for catching that! I’ve updated the post to correct my error.
