This was turning out to be quite a baseball game.  It was a great fundraiser and everyone was having a great time.  Mr. Pocket even brought his collection of autographed baseballs for everyone to see.  And the score was tied -- Men 1, Women 1.  But then the umpire had a bad sneezing fit and left to take his allergy medicine.  When he didn't return after several minutes, Josh went into the locker room to check on him.  And what did he find?  A smashed case and all the valuable baseballs missing!  Who could have taken them?  See if you can put the clues together and figure it out!
SUBJECTS:      Baseball -- Fiction.
