(Associated Press) A youth baseball league in the eastern Illinois town of Atwood says it badly needs to raise money. So it's auctioning off an AR-15 rifle.
The Atwood-Hammond league raised just $10 with a raffle last year for more conventional prizes. According to WAND-TV in Decatur, a local gun shop provided the league with the AR-15 to raffle this year. Atwood and Hammond are small towns about 25 miles southwest of Champaign.
