Little league baseball players return to field

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of Arlington kids are back on the baseball diamond after their league was forced to shut down during the Fall season.  This is a story FOX 4 brought to you back in September.

The league was shut down after more than $20,000 disappeared and the former President of the League was arrested and accused of stealing the money.

Without that money, Southeast Arlington Little League was stuck with a lot of young athletes who wanted to play, but no money to make that happen.  That is, until the Texas Rangers stepped in.

The team was able to raise more than the needed $20,000 to help the kids get back on the field.

The former President, Claudia Castillo, was voted off of the board last Summer after an internal review showed the money was gone.  The arrest affidavit accuses her of buying several personal items with league money for at least a year. 

Castillo was arrested and charges are expected to be filed against her.
