A few notes as we head into the weekend…
Two people have been arrested in connection with that home invasion robbery earlier this month that included the theft of baseball cards.
The Springfield News-Sun reports 44-year-old Anthony Hosier was charged with aggravated burglary, breaking and entering and a weapons charge.
The incident was captured on surveillance video inside the home.
The victim needed 30 stitches in his head after police say Hoosier and two others beat him with objects they picked up inside his home.
The newspaper reported Hosier pleaded not guilty to the charges in municipal court Thursday and is in the Clark County Jail on $30,000 bond.
A juvenile has also been arrested in connection with the case and police have issued warrants for another man.

Speaking of World Series memorabilia, an eBay seller is offering a ticket stub to Babe Ruth’s first World Series game in 1915. Ruth was a pitcher/outfielder for the Red Sox. The stub is in remarkably good condition.
You’ve seen ‘blaster boxes’ of new sports card products on Target and Walmart shelves for years—even the occasional larger retail or hobby box but Panini caused a stir when it announced that its Prestige Basketball product would only be sold at Target.
It comes in three different tiers, with the high end boxes containing four autographs and priced at $199.99.
One of the largest online retailers is doing some discounting this weekend. Steiner Sports is offering 30% off autographed memorabilia if you spend $300 or more. Use the discount code FRI30 via this link.
