Lennox Little League Returns $1,200 Donation From LA Strip Club

UPDATE 3/14: Officials with the Lennox Little League have decided to return the $1,200 donation from the Jet Strip Gentleman's Club after discovering the source of the funds, but a generous CBS2 viewer has stepped in and donated $1,600 to resuscitate the league.

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A Southland Little League will stay on the field for another season after a generous tip from a local strip club.

Hundreds of players from the Lennox Little League will get the chance to play on after the $1,200 donation from the Jet Strip Gentleman's Club.

But the windfall from the Jet Strip combined with $1,600 in other donations may not be enough to keep the league operating beyond this year.

Fees from the K-8 Lennox School District — which owns all the baseball diamonds with a one-square-mile area surrounding Los Angeles International Airport — have doubled since December.

The traditional baseball fare of grilled hot dogs and hamburgers have also been banned at league games, the Los Angeles Times reported.
