No one's getting to home base this year. The Lennox Little League has changed its mind about accepting a $1,200 donation from a local strip club that could have saved their 2012 season.

Nearby gentlemen's club, Jet Strip, along with other donations, would have covered the higher price of playing ball after an increase in fees including the school district's double price for diamond usage.

Despite the fallout for around 40 teams — approximately 300 kids — league officials "felt the source of the money was not appropriate," KTLA reports.

League president, Roberto Aguirre, hopes the district will be able to re-negotiate fees so the kids can still play baseball this season.

Unlike, say, the movie-version of this storyline, Jet Strip was not asking for its logo to appear on any team jerseys.
