Atlee Little League's junior softball team was disqualified from its World Series championship game Saturday over what officials deemed "an inappropriate social media post."
A member of the team, which is made up of 12- to 14-year-old girls from the Richmond, Va. area, posted a photo on her Snapchat account Friday night showing six players giving the middle finger with the caption "watch out host," according to Marissa Payne of the Washington Post.

The photo was brought to the attention of Atlee manager Scott Currie, who demanded it be deleted and arranged for his players to apologize in person to the host team from Kirkland. Despite those efforts, Atlee was disqualified from the tournament.
Little League spokesman Kevin Fountain issued the following statement to theRichmond Times-Dispatch:
After discovering a recent inappropriate social media post involving members of Atlee Little League's Junior League Softball tournament team, the Little League International Tournament Committee has removed the Southeast Region from the 2017 Junior League Softball World Series for violation of Little League's policies regarding unsportsmanlike conduct, inappropriate use of social media, and the high standard that Little League International holds for all its participants.

Booting them seems like a little much, I think yelling at them probably would have been good enough.
