Team: PAL in Yonkers goes back on promise to play at centerPosted: Updated:
The Police Athletic League Center in Yonkers is being called out for bad sportsmanship after a children's basketball team claims the center went back on a promise.
The Westchester Athletics have been training at the PAL Center since fall 2017, when the center offered to let them play there for free. In exchange, they would represent PAL as their traveling team.
Last week, Harold Howard, of Westchester Athletics, says the tables turned when new management said the team couldn't play there anymore because they wanted to start the center off on a clean slate.
The team found a temporary place to practice, but say the place is not big enough for their team.
The team also has to get new jerseys because all of their current ones says “PAL.”
