The Milwaukee Brewers are no strangers to truly bizarre intrusions into their ballpark. Remember the dude who Grand Theft Auto’d a tractor and carved up the infield on a joyride after hours? Dang that was wild.
And now they have a new one to add to the collection, with a fan who allegedly passed out in the bushes outside American Family Field after a double-header, woke up later, waltzed into the team’s clubhouse, filled a duffle bag with goodies, and then walked back out.
Yeah, he’s in trouble if it’s all true. The ESPN report, citing a mid-December complaint about the September incident, indicates the guy drank about 10 beers, fell asleep, and then pulled on a stadium door until it opened. That was it. Not exactly the best setup for a heist flick.
While inside, the guy reportedly took – among many other things – game-used jerseys, pitching devices, a replica World Series ring (who makes a replica World Series APPEARANCE ring?), a passport, credit cards, keys to the team’s facility in Arizona (I guess that’s for the sequel), and Craig Counsell’s shaving kit.
Imagine going to the big house for purloining Craig Counsell’s shaving kit.
