Thief hits Phillies pitcher’s Wash. home

MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) — Police are searching for thieves who burglarized the Mount Vernon, Wash., home of Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Kyle Kendrick and took his World Series ring.

Lt. Chris Cammock said Monday that the thieves also took other valuable items. He says Kendrick and his family were not home at the time of the burglary, which occurred in late March.

The 26-year-old (pictured in March) graduated from Mount Vernon High School and turned down an opportunity to play quarterback at Washington State to sign with Phillies.

Cammock says he wants to alert the public in case Kendrick's items are resold on the secondary market.

  • Factoid: Halladay becomes only the second pitcher in postseason play to throw a no-hitter. The first? Don Larsen in his 1956 2-0 victory over the Brooklyn Dodgers. Larsen is now living in Hayden.
