No, that's not an April Fool's joke.
Spriing training is winding down in Florida and the Grapefruit League has produced one last caper--this one involving a piece of baseball memorabilia.
It seems someone broke into a storage area at the New York Yankees' spring training complex after hours last week and stole--at least temporarily--second base.
Not just any second base, though. This one was parked on the field in the 2007 All-Star game and had been autographed by Mets' shortstop Jose Reyes. It was part of a sports memorabilia company's inventory that had been on display during the spring games.
The base eventually turned up, but the story isn't over yet, according to the local newspaper.
