After one of the best stories of the summer last year in which Jackie Robinson West won the United States’ side of the Little League World Series, it was taken away for having ineligible players. After arguing for their case, they have filed a lawsuit against Little League to take back the title. They initially were accused of stretching their geographical boundaries to gain a better selection of players.

Their lawsuit claims that they were the only team to be scrutinized and investigated, pointing out an all African American team as the reason this was done. The team claimed that their ineligible players came by as a mistake, not a way to gain an advantage. It will surely be a while before anything further happens, but most fans would like to see the title given back to them. 

Take a look below as they win the US Championship:
