MLB.com Writers Robbed Outside Great American Ball Park

Barry Bloom and Thomas Harding of MLB.com were robbed at gunpoint early Tuesday morning outside Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati.

A young man dressed in red stole $500 in cash from Bloom and $100 from Harding, along with credit cards.

“I thought the guy was a fan as he approached, but he said, ‘We can do this the easy way or the hard way,’” Bloom told Hall of Fame baseball writer Hal McCoy. “I started to walk away and he began yelling at me and pulled this big gun that looked like a Glock. He said, ‘Put your wallets on the ground.’ We did and he picked them up and ran off.”

Who carries $500 in their wallet, let alone when they are at work? That robber hit the meda jackpot.

If someone robbed me, they would be lucky to get $20 from me.
