An Iowa pitcher had a colorful explanation for a walk that brought the tying run to the plate in a Little League World Series game on Saturday. Colin Townsend said ESPN — which was broadcasting the game — was behind a questionable ball call in a seeming conspiracy, speaking to manager Dave McFate and his teammates during the bottom of the final inning. According to BizPac Review, McFate was wearing a live microphone during a conference on the pitcher’s mound, catching Townsend’s conspiratorial allegation. “This is for ESPN. It’s for ESPN so they can come back. Because ESPN likes this. It’s all ESPN,” the youth said. ESPN has even lost its credibility with 12-year-old boys. The ESPN announcers calling the game didn’t react to the pitcher’s accusations against their network. In the end, McFate’s advice served his team well. Iowa held on to its lead, going on to defeat Washington 6-3 in the contest. The team defeated Utah before losing to Texas in an elimination game on Tuesday, according to the Des Moines Register.
