Pastor Pfleger, has kicked off the ‘letter writing campaign” for the Jackie Robinson West Little League Team at St. Sabina one yesterday. Our boys are “Beautiful and Showed Such Great Respect ” and the way they were treated is still hard to believe that it went this far for whatever reason the person had.
However, you can help to restore some sort of decency to what was “wrongly motivated”… and lead to stripping our boys what was rightly theirs.
There was no “cheating”… just someone who was fueled by the wrong agenda. Go to http://www.saintsabina.org and download the letter of restore our champions!!!
DONT you dare turn your head when injustices are surfacing within a children’s baseball club. You might believe they have certain facts but not the whole truth that has been willfully misrepresented.
We would like for everyone to get involved and tell the headquarters of the Little League Baseball of your distaste to punish children and stripped them of their well owned and deserved title. Sadly, over a disgruntle member of the Little League Ball club!

I don’t find it remarkably strange that Jackie Robinson West Little League…will be abandoned in the fight for injustice. I see the wobbly weak spirits already! However, I saw so many from across this nation cheering them on this past summer. As they stand in the heat of another kind of battle they are not with the same kind of comfort.
Now the cheering is gone, and I hear the critics. Making “derogatory” comments. Sadly, this really just how emotionally fickle human beings are.
Love me today… hate me tomorrow.
I know many of you don’t understand what “really” happened and the injustices that were done to the children. It’s not okay to call the children cheaters. They played the game and won. No one is asking anyone to break the rules or look over wrong doing. But, first lets start with the “messy adults”. I am not speaking about our coaches either.
I speaking about the person or persons who have nothing else better to do but keep up much ado about nothing. What I am a little taken back with … is that the person that said the “house was on fire”.. his seem to be already burned. There is pertinent information that all of Evergreen Park Team wasn’t all from that area either. Hmmm?
Secondly, the pettiness of one’s ego was a slightly bruised enough to whirl accusations. Having the first stone and you have the same sin.
You don’t find out that you lost your titles and championship over the “air waves” and by word of mouth. Unfortunately this is how the team was told. The saddest part about all of this… is that many was on the bandwagon as long as they were in the hype of the media. Many celebrities, politicians, sports figures were onboard. What angers me… I saw the enthusiasm this baseball club brought together. Jackie Robinson name isn’t tarnished by this “messy” business of hurting children or making an example out of grown folks lies. I want people to know this goes beyond mistreatment only a certain circuit of media wants to dispel what really happened.
Whatever web of lives , distortion of the truth that have been dispersed publicly will come out during this “legal process” of the mistreatment of our boys. Here is another sidebar that people weren’t aware of… I agree, there should be all out investigation because people personal private records were assessed and many other unjust rights were violated by not with our League but within the overall Little League . Before you want to even crucify the “coaches”… realize that the rules were regulation were met… Someone had an ax to grind and they wanted our children’s head on the chopping block!
Yes, I pray that the “truth” comes out. I have no idea why this was done in such a distasteful manner but I do know that malice and jealousy… was running in deep waters. In the history of any game… the so-called re-mapping goes on a lot especially within the League…Yet, our boys were made the example. But it’s so painful to know that lies spin so far out of control. And the “hatred” of another went this far! Why penalize our children for all out blatant hatred?
What lesson are you teaching our boys that rules apply only to some but not the entire host? Really? The public humiliation to no longer hail them as champions but cheaters? That’s a low blow even for people who know that real responsibility wasn’t with them it is with the entire league!
We know this “isn’t” about baseball at all… PRAY FOR JACKIE ROBINSON WEST LITTLE LEAGUE!

Isn’t it funny how “lessons” will continue to come again…all because it hasn’t been addressed? So, the lesson continues…until it finally hits your “home” address. When people hate you, they are not trying to figure out how to rescue you but more importantly how to dig a grave for you.
Although, I have seen and witnessed in my “Middle Age” of life what this feels like. People actually dismiss the importance of having integrity and character and you will be shunned because of your champion behavior.
Snakes are snakes…. Some will lie waiting to figure out the right moment to “attack” you even if you tell yourself the lie that it’s done with the right heart.
You see, Mr. Slewfoot, (the devil)…will trip any of us up on, rules and regulations that we fail to execute on. What we say, and what we have done will be examined in another lie. It has been going on forever but you will be made to be the example!
When someone has hatred they will stop at nothing to say when, what and why. That is why it’s important to make sure we “try” to get it all right so nothing blows up in our faces.
Character is huge whether you are rich or poor… black or white. But how can we tell when someone has this undercurrent level of racial hatred?
It was still wrong and I heard the very ones who say… Dr. King was this and that. Yet, I saw the stance. I know that some will disagree and I don’t personally care… I know that all because one is a celebrity doesn’t means that they care…
And I always hear celebrities should get involved… I ask why?
If their hearts and not in it… it’s just another way of publicizing their phoniness. I PREFER QUALITY AND NOT QUANTITY… I don’t want any celebrity who” flip- flops” when the money is the bait and the public is watching. The real pressure comes they are a no show in character!!!
Many didn’t care what happened to her …but I did. Although, she stood with the better dignity and grace. She didn’t try to cover her tracks to ease her conscious she didn’t have to do a remake of “Precious Lord”…
In actuality it has been so many things people ignored… and still our “Westernized society” still tell us when to speak up about the ills in this country. From the color of our skin to the Jackie Robinson West Baseball League…
Obviously someone had an axe to grind. What I can’t stand is the hypocrisy in this country. No one paid for the scandal before the Super bowl…The Super Bowl meant money and lots of it! These are children being penalize for something I believe is clearly not their faults. I question why strip the children but you can penalize the League with other options?
SPEAK UP ON ALL OF IT… Regardless of how much of a “superstar” you think they are. Tell the truth. And because our people ignore certain things when it comes to making money and status this opens the door for more unwarranted attacks even if they are “our” children. I can guarantee for a couple of weeks… “the media hogs” will be posted up! How embarrassing is this when this continues to happen but then there is hype!
There should be full frontal of protest around the country on hypocrisy in this country. Jackie Robinson West, wont be the only ones who will suffer at the abuse of power and intent. The next generation will catch even more hell if we don’t stop with the selective reasoning’s when it comes to discrimination.
I am almost certain when I was growing up in Suburbia, everyone wasn’t the age they say that they were,, and many of them use other family addresses to play. What isn’t a shocker for me is that people want it both ways… The want all black and brown boys to be thugs… and on the other hand they want them to civilized citizens but continuously pulls the rug from under them and make them the examples I am almost sure that on all the Little League with investigation everyone is short on something.
Yet, when it comes to being the minority you should know by now the “rules of engagement ” has always been different. I know personally how disturbing and hurtful this can be. When you arrive expect that you will be “scrutinize” heavily because you do have something to offer that some people feel threaten by even if it’s your skin color!
Mr. Chris Janes, Vice President Athletic Association of Evergreen Park, files a complaint… knows what his intentions were about racial impacted or not.
For sure… jealousy and malice is definitely there! Sadly, he didn’t do this to maintain the integrity of the Little League because he doesn’t have it!
Let this serve as a reminder ” race” is going to be a factor! Secondly, we must stop doing selective protests when it come to being discriminated against…

I have heard all the wonderful things about the discipline of the Jackie Robinson West Little League Team… I have been a baseball fan all of my life. What brought me to tears that my “Grandfather” who was a serious baseball fanatic isn’t alive to see this history…He also introduced his sons to “Little League Baseball this wasn’t foreign to me. I think what helped me was to see children be children again!!! Please let this be one of the focal points for change within our community.
I volunteered in these programs over the years and I thank God I lived to see it for my “Granddad”… If you saw so many post about these children it’s because this is dear to my heart. We talked about solving the violence… Did you not see the remnant of what is to come… LET US PRAY!
God, I thank you, I lift you up …and I magnify your name… I ask God that you dispatch your angels north, south, east and west! God keep them and let them grow up and mature to mighty men of God!
I thank God for the people who have influenced these gifted and bright young men. Right now,,, I would like to cover these children, parents,coaches , and founder and all mentors in their lives with a prayer of protection, prosperity in every area of their lives… We ask in the name of Jesus…that you keep them God, that them well respect, well educated, and let them keep you first in their lives.
I ask that the blood of Jesus cover these young men and all of our children who participate in any positive programs across this city… and nation! I bind every demonic entity that comes against them…
Angels of the Lord, keep them from all hurt, harm or dangers! Let them continue to connect only those people who are connected to their destiny! give them divine favor, guidance, Godly direction and wisdom… We ask them in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit …Amen…
If you can join Pastor Pfleger , tomorrow to celebrate our National Champs…
