Stealing third no laughing matter in Tosa

April 6, 2010

Stealing third base usually results in cheers and applause. But at Longfellow Middle School, grounds crews are hardly excited.

According to Wauwatosa police:

Employees noticed in early March that the second and third bases on the school baseball diamond, 7600 W. North Ave., had been taken over the winter. It wasn't until the snow melted that the missing bases were noticed.

At 10 a.m. March 25, employees put in new bases. When they returned to do more grounds work a half-hour later, the third base again had been stolen.
