About 9,150 baseballs and bats have been stolen from 18 schools in five prefectures, the National Police Agency said Friday.

According to police, the sports gear was stolen from high schools in Tochigi, Saitama, Gunma, Ibaraki and Fukushima prefectures between mid-July and Aug 16, Fuji TV reported.

The baseballs and bats were stolen from storerooms belonging to the schools’ baseball clubs, police said. In some cases, the doors on the storage cabinets were not locked; in other cases, locks were broken, police said.

I slowly stole nearly all the silverware from my jr high over a couple months. My mom found the duffle bag with it all. Blamed my friend and she bought it. They started using those packets with a plastic spoons and forks with a napkin. IDK why, just being a s*** head i guess.
I bet Ronald McDonald is real tired of kickin it with dying brats...

That includes balls. And Japan takes school sports and other clubs seriously. They get budgets and everything. And the budgets can be immense if it's a large enough club. Like, tens of thousands of dollars per year if it's winning at the prefecture and national level.

Baseball is pretty big in Japan.

It's like the only country other than the US which takes it seriously as a sport
