Central Iowa protest upheld at Little League Softball World Series

 

The Central Iowa All-Stars made the most of their second chance at the Little League Softball World Series on Tuesday, advancing to the semifinals after winning a one-game playoff against a Washington team that was ruled to have rested its stars and lost on purpose to avoid a rematch.

 

Central Iowa, which had earlier lost to the West regional champion in pool play, won the rematch Tuesday against South Snohomish 3-2 in Portland, Oregon.

 

Central Iowa, which finished 3-1 in pool play, could have advanced Monday to the semifinals if South Snohomish either scored three runs vs. the U.S. Southeast representative from North Carolina or won the game to finish 4-0 in pool play. However, Washington rested its top four players and, according to Central Iowa Little League president Chris Chadd, ordered its players to bunt and reportedly had players swinging at pitches in the dirt.

That stuff has been happening in AAU basketball for years. Guys win games in pool play and tank as needed to get a better matchup in bracket play.

 

You need an abacus to keep up with all the nonsense.

 

And in baseball. Of course, the instances where I've seen it have been more subtle than bunting everyone and swinging at pitches in the dirt.
