Police have released photos of the replacement-level scrubs who broke into MCU Park under cover of a blizzard on Jan. 26.

The bench warmers snuck onto the Cyclones’ Surf Avenue turf through a loading dock gate at 10:30 pm during what was forecasted to be a record-breaking snowfall.

The trio took a swing at some minor-league chicanery, vandalizing the home team’s locker room before stealing baseball bats and a “Spiderman ski mask,” police said.

Police couldn’t say what messages the chumps scrawled on the park’s hallowed walls.

Nothing taken was irreplaceable, and the theft won’t effect the park’s warm-weather kids baseball clinics, MCU Park spokesman Billy Harner told this paper earlier this month.

Park workers discovered the break-in after finding footprints in the snow when they returned to work the day after the blizzard that wasn’t, he said.

“We saw footprints, and we kind of figured that there was something askew,” Harner said.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto or by texting tips to 274637 then entering “TIP577.” All calls are strictly confidential, police said.
