Protest Upheld Over Fixed Game At Little League Softball World Series

Say it ain’t so, Snohomish:

A team from Central Iowa will get a second chance to advance past pool play at the Little League Softball World Series in Portland, Oregon, after officials determined Monday that a team from Snohomish, Washington, rested its stars and lost on purpose to avoid a rematch in the semifinals.

Central Iowa, which finished 3-1 in pool play, could have advanced to the semifinals if the Washington team either scored just 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 their players to bunt.

The result: North Carolina no-hit the Washington team in an 8-0 victory, and the Central Iowa All-Stars finished in a three-way tie—and out of the tournament.
