LENNOX, Calif. (AP) -- A cash-strapped Little League in Los Angeles County is returning a surprise donation from a strip club.
League President Roberto Aguirre said the league's board of directors met late into the night on Monday. They finally decided to return the $1,200 that was donated by the Jet Strip gentlemen's club two weeks ago.
The league needs the money to rent fields from the Lennox School District, which doubled fees to play on its baseball diamonds. As news of the strip club's donation spread, contributions came from around the country.
Aguirre tells the Torrance Daily Breeze that the league still needs help. Lennox is a poor, unincorporated neighborhood near the Los Angeles International Airport.
The league offers a payment plan so families can afford the annual $85 per-player fee.
