Thousands of dollars in merchandise was stolen from the CSU-Pueblo ThunderWolf baseball team.
A team locker room, storage area and coaches offices at Rawlings Field in Pueblo were broken into sometime overnight Wednesday, according to a news release on the team’s website.
"We're scrambling right now,” head coach Stan Sanchez said in the news release. “"Luckily they didn't get our uniform tops."
Starting Thursday, CSU-Pueblo plays a four-game series in Riverside, Calif., against the nation's 10th-ranked Lancers.
The news release didn't give an estimated value of stolen items, which include fielding golves, bats, catcher's gear and more.
Anyone with information about the theft is asked to contact Lt. Bill Brown with the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office at 719-549-2373.
The baseball program already received an unsolicited donation from a CSU-Pueblo professor to help cover the immediate needs, according to the release.
Others interested in helping can call CSU-Pueblo Associate Athletic Director for Athletic Development Jeremy Capo at 719-549-2013.
