Men caught gambling on little league games

BROWARD COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - Nine men, including several coaches, face charges for, allegedly, running an illegal gambling ring centered around youth football in South Florida.

Authorities in Broward County were first tipped off by ESPN journalists, who claim they saw parents exchanging money in the stands while watching their kids play.

In fact, investigators say the stakes were more than $100,000s for one championship game.
