Little League To Return Donation From Strip Club

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.

    What's the problem with the donation? I'd bet several player's moms work there, the coaches have probably helped donate to this fund- why an issue. At least strippers are more honest than politicians.

    I totally agree with you C*. It spends the same right? Besides the strippers are just trying to get through college right? :D How fun would it be to have a band of strippers come watch your games?

      Thank you and I'll make a correction before the spelling police show up. This came "from" a strip club. :-) I'd rather have strippers at games than the politicians Dilbert mentioned.

        Strippers at game? I thought they were called cheerleaders. Upskirt can be just as good.

    How stupid! Money is money. This came for a strip club, not a drug dealer! Nothing like cutting your own throat! You needed the money so badly, you should have thanked them and kept it!
