Greenwich tells teens: You're out
The Greenwich teens who built the Wiffle ball field were called out and told to hit the showers by town officials after a two-hour meeting Wednesday.
The teens met with First Selectman Peter Tesei, and thought the talks were going well - until the topic of the field came up.
"We started to get into what was going on, then we felt like we were done," says Scott Atkinson.
Since it was built, the Riverfield Lane field has caused some controversy in the town. The teens built the field on town property without the proper town permits or permission.
Greenwich officials say the teens can play a finale on Thursday, but come Friday, the Department of Parks and Recreation will turn the teens' field of dreams into rubble when it tears it down.
Officials say it boiled down to liability and the possibility of lawsuits. A glimmer of hope emerged for the teens, as the town proposed a plan to build a new park, but for now that's just an idea.
