A Little League director in Pennsylvania is sending a message to young players about the Houston Astros and their sign stealing.
"Right now, in our leagues, the Astros are suspended," said Bob Bertoni, head of District 16/31 Little League.
Bertoni is recommending that no teams in the 23 leagues he oversees use the Astros team name this season.
"I think about our Little League pledge; that's the first thing that comes to my mind. Part of the pledge is, 'I will play fair and strive to win,'" Bertoni said.
"Our kids emulate and idolize major league players," he added. "I don't think we as an organization should be idolizing teams that have decided not to play by the rules."
The Orange County Register reported last week that two Little League communities in Southern California banned the Astros name for the upcoming season.
