AK-47 rifle among items stolen from Evan Longoria’s house

This morning Craig wrote about how someone broke into the house Evan Longoria, David Price, and Reid Brignac are renting during spring training, stealing more than $50,000 worth of property.

Initial reports pegged the valuables as a 60-inch television, three iPads, a laptop, and several watches, but now Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times reports that an AK-47 assault rifle belonging to Longoria was also stolen.

Longoria talked to reporters about the break-in, but when asked specifically about the rife he replied:

It’s a personal item. Obviously they’re going to say things that are taken. I think everything within the house is personal and we’ll just leave it at that.

According to the sheriff’s office the AK-47 was “perfectly legal” for Longoria to own, although having that in the place he’s renting for six weeks does raise some eyebrows.

According to former major leaguer and current broadcaster Ryan Spilborghs, Jenny Cavnar will be calling play-by-play of Monday night’s game against the Padres for the Rockies. The broadcast will be on AT&T Sportsnet Rocky Mountain Region.

Cavnar will be at least the third woman to call televised play-by-play for a major league team, joining Gayle Gardner (Rockies, 1993) and Suzyn Waldman (Yankees, mid-1990’s).

Broadcasting remains largely the domain of white men, so it’s always good when women and people of color are able to have a seat in the broadcasting booth.
