    Remember the story about the stolen ring three weeks ago? Here’s another via the New Haven Register:

    A New York Yankees World Series Ring worth at least $10,000 has been stolen from the Waterfront Park office desk of the Trenton Thunder’s clubhouse manager.

    The manager, 51-year-old Tom “Tonto” Kackley, received the ring sometime on last Thursday, and by 1 a.m. last Friday, he had discovered it missing.

    The apparent theft is under investigation by the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office, who released information about the heist today.

    The ring is described as blue and silver in color with diamonds depicting the insignia of the Yankees.

    The rings were given to all full-time employees of the Yankees to commemorate their championship win over the Philadelphia Phillies last year.

    Depsite serving as the clubhouse manager for the Thunder in Trenton, The Yankee’s AA minor league affiliate, Kackley is considered a direct employee of the professional ball club in New York, according to Thunder spokesperson Bill Cook.

    Cook said yesterday afternoon he had no knowledge of the theft, and Kackley was currently on the road with the team and couldn’t be reached.

    Shame. Tonto seems like a nice guy. Hopefully the ring turns up soon and gets back to him.

      His fault. When he got it, he should have gone Lord of the Rings on that thing and not left it out of his sight.

      It would really stink if this turns out to be an insider job. Worse if it turns out that one of the Thunder players took the ring.
