A youth baseball league is reeling from a break-in at their concession stand that caused all kinds of damage.
The Raytown Baseball Association's interim treasurer walked KCTV5 through the damage at Little Blue Trace Park. At least $700 worth of food was stolen along with the damage.
"This area is where the bars were pried open and the plexiglass was broken out," Denise Hart said. "Hot dogs, hamburgers, most of our other concessions."
Hart suspects it took a less sportsmanlike teamwork to cut through the metal bars here - break out the plexiglass - and strip the fridge almost bare.
The money generated by sales help pay for umpires and supplies.
"They do a good job with the kids, they are very patient with them," said Robert Crowe, whose son is involved in the league. "And they want all the kids to have fun at the end of the day and succeed."
Police are at work trying to find the culprits - who also doused the room with bleach, damaging some of the equipment.
The volunteer staff, meanwhile, could use a hand from the community to get them back to where they were before.
