Walter Payton students ask baseball coach to step down
The Sun Times reports several players on Walter Payton College Prep’s baseball team told their coach they want him to step down.
This comes after the coach forfeited a game against a South Side school, and claimed it was because parents were worried about safety.
Yesterday, CPS hosted a breakfast for the two teams, intended to ease tensions.
Some members of Gwendolyn Brooks College Prep’s team were offended by the coach’s claim.
But Payton school officials say, the game was canceled simply because the coach failed to arrange bus transportation.
The game was rescheduled, and the teams were set to play Saturday night.
