Major League Baseball (MLB) star Yasiel Puig was burglarized while playing the game that ultimately lost his team the World Series, according to TMZ Sports.
TMZ Sports on Thursday reported that the burglary happened while Puig and his fellow Los Angeles Dodgers were playing the Houston Astros the night before.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ Sports that the burglar broke a window in Puig’s San Fernando Valley home in Los Angeles.
The break-in triggered an alarm at Puig’s home, and the suspect soon fled after grabbing some jewelry.
The entire episode was caught on surveillance video, and a law enforcement source told TMZ Sports that a burglar took $150 worth of costume jewelry from Puig’s home.
Puig ended his Wednesday evening by speaking with police officers at his home who were investigating the crime.
The Dodgers lost Game 7 of this season’s World Series to the Astros earlier Wednesday, falling to them 5-1 in Los Angeles.
Puig, who plays right fielder for the Dodgers, went 0-for-3 at the plate during the contest that evening.
The professional baseball player batted .148 with two home runs and four RBIs during the entire 2017 World Series.
TMZ Sports reported in March that thieves stole more than $500,000 worth of jewelry from Puig’s home in Los Angeles.
Burglars at the time made off with three high-end Rolex watches and other pieces of costly jewelry.
TMZ Sports’ sources said Puig was having a relative watch the property while he was at the Dodgers’ spring training camp in Arizona.
The robbers from March, however, entered Puig’s home when the relative was not present to complete their heist.
