Fake Ball Team

Two Northern California deaf men are facing charges they tried pretended to raise money for a ball team that didn’t exist. Ferndale police say they believe the pair wanted to use the funds to buy drugs, making up a story about a deaf baseball team needing money to go to a tournament in Florida. They men had created pledge forms using the name of a legitimate deaf associated and asked for $5 donations.
