One little league player thinks ESPN is fixing the Little League World Series game.
During this weekend’s Washington-Iowa game, a player from Iowa’s team was caught on a hot mic blaming a terrible umpire strike call on ESPN.
“All Little League is for ESPN,” Iowa’s No. 10 told his manager who wearing a mic. “It’s for ESPN so they can come back. That’s because ESPN likes it, it’s all ESPN.”
The team’s manager tried to calm the kid down and said “there’s nothing we can do about that strike call, there’s two outs, we gotta shake that.”

Iowa went on to win the game, so maybe the kid can chill on the conspiracy talk for now.
