Willie McCovey Memorabilia Recovered from Stolen Car

Willie McCovey Memorabilia Recovered from Stolen Car

When a man in Walnut Creek, California had his car stolen from the parking lot while he ran into a McDonald's for coffee, he was obviously having a bad case of the Mondays. The man left his keys in the ignition when he went inside the restaurant. When he returned, his car was gone. However, the stolen Hyundai was not even the worst part for the owner.

In the back seat of the car were several balls and bats from former Giants Hall of Famer, Willie McCovey, as well as an autographed uniform patch. A security camera got a shot of the suspect taking the car and the pictures were quickly distributed through the police department's Facebook page. Police received a call in Concord, California from someone who had seen the story about the theft and thought they had identified the stolen vehicle. From there, the Concord police were able to recover the car and some of the memorabilia. There were no specifics about the items that were still missing.

Willie McCovey played 22 seasons in the majors, 19 of which were spent in San Francisco. His many accolades include six All-Star selections, the 1959 National League Rookie of the Year Award, as well as the NL MVP and All-Star Game MVP in 1969. He was a first-ballot selection to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1986.
