The Manteca Little League is trying to recover after being the target of thieves.
It was sometime between Wednesday night and Thursday morning when crooks used a flat bar to pry open the league's storage unit at Lincoln Park.
"The door was literally hanging off, it had been pulled," said Brian Grabowski, president of the Manteca Little League.
The thieves made off with maintenance equipment, including a four-wheel ATV. "We had a case of Manteca Little League baseballs that were taken. Those were our playoff baseballs," said Grabowski.
The kids' batting helmets and catching gear were also stolen – a total loss of about $3,000.
