Principals at Gwendolyn Brooks and Walter Payton High Schools are calling the cancellation of Saturday evenings varsity baseball game a "very unfortunate misunderstanding."

Originally, Brooks coaches were told Payton parents were concerned about their children's safety and did not want to drive to the Roseland neighborhood on the Far South Side.

The principals say Payton was forced to forfeit because the school forgot to provide transportation and some athletes were taking advanced placement exams.
