Fifty years ago, they were screwed-up kids sent to the Florida School for Boys to be straightened out. But now they are screwed-up men, scarred by the whippings they endured. Read the story and see a video and portrait gallery.
Robinson coach Sal Urso said he is appealing to the Florida High School Athletic Association the ejection of his leftfielder, Shane Scanlon, from Tuesday night's 4-3 Robinson victory over Dunedin, which was marred by a postgame skirmish between the teams.
If the ejection holds up, Scanlon cannot play in Friday's region semifinal against Northeast. Umpires ejected Scanlon after he slid into home plate with his elbows held high to the catcher. Umpires said Scanlon's elbows struck toward Dunedin's catcher.
Urso said Scanlon had his elbows raised to defend himself from a possible collision.
"It's perfectly clear from the tape we have that Scanlon wasn't trying to do anything wrong," Urso said. "That tape will be on the FHSAA's doorstep (today) and hopefully it will reverse the decision in time for Friday night's game."
