(Newser) – The Evanston Township High School baseball team was supposed to be suiting up for a state playoff game tonight, but a sexting controversy brought the season to an early end. It seems girls at the Illinois school sent "inappropriate" photos to their boyfriends on the team, and school officials got wind of it when the boys started sharing them, reports the Chicago Tribune. The athletic director suspended those involved, then pulled the team out of the playoffs because he didn't have enough players left to take the field. You can read the superintendent's letter to parents here. The police aren't getting involved. (Read more sexting stories.)
