Just as the New York Mets’ longtime clubhouse manager is charged with stealing stuff from the Mets, we have word of another clubhouse theft. This time, however, it doesn’t sound like an inside job:
Authorities in New York say a Massachusetts man is accused of stealing Boston Red Sox memorabilia from Fenway Park. Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota says the suspect, Jamie Pritchard Holland, has been charged with criminal possession of stolen property that was taken during a burglary at the Boston ballpark. It was not immediately clear why the arrest happened on New York’s Long Island.
Investigators recovered a home plate, Red Sox uniforms, a first base glove used by Kevin Youkilis, cleats worn by second baseman Dustin Pedroia and other team property.
I watched that movie “The Town” a couple of months ago. After watching Ben Affleck’s crew get shot down like dogs in the bowels of Fenway Park, I wouldn’t try to steal anything from that place.
