Cd'A High School Baseball Field Vandalized

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - Coeur d'Alene Police and Officials at Coeur d'Alene High School are looking for the people responsible for vandalizing the school's baseball field over the weekend.

School officials say the incident happened sometime late Friday night after their game because on Saturday morning players and coaches returned to the field to find the pitcher's mound dug up and destroyed. The pitching rubber had been stolen and the bat racks in the dugout had been ripped off the walls. It is estimated damage is several hundred dollars.

Coaches and players spent most of the weekend repairing the mound to get the field ready for Monday's game. School officials believe the vandalism likely happened in the form of a prank, but they are taking it very seriously and plan to press charges if the vandals are caught.

"It's really frustrating," said Todd Gilkey, Athletic Director, Coeur d'Alene High School. "Not just for me as athletic director for having the expense of replacing the things that were destroyed, but for the kids and coaches. Baseball players put their heart and soul into this field and it's just like somebody coming into your home and destroying your home."

School officials say they have a good idea who might be responsible for vandalizing the field, but say it's going to be hard to prove it unless they get them to confess.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Coeur d'Alene Police or Coeur d'Alene High School.
