Stolen! Safe! Not!
Parents of a northwest Indiana youth baseball team are scrambling to put together a season for their 11-year-old sons, after a South Elgin man who was coaching the team skipped town with nearly $8,000 of their funds.
The Hobart Deep River Devils had been promised a schedule of up to 60 games under their new coach who took over in the fall, but when the first real game rolled around April 15, he sent a text message saying it was canceled.
Suspicion mounted, the parents checked where their $675 per CHILD went, and discovered the dude skipped town.
