PEORIA, Ill. — Someone is missing a 2011 World Series championship baseball hat autographed by St. Louis Cardinals players.
The Journal Star in Peoria reports a central Illinois man found the hat on an off-ramp along Interstate 74. The man who found it — 38-year-old Joe Couri of Brimfield, Ill., — said he's a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan. The hat appears to be signed by David Freese, Yadier Molina, Jason Motte and other players.
Couri wants to return the hat to its owner. He said whoever comes forward will have to know an unexpected signature on the hat or "have a picture of himself wearing it."
Couri said he was driving home when traffic backed up because of an accident. He said he saw the hat among debris along the ramp.
