The 2017 baseball is in a plastic case and signed by several members of the team. Police say the proper owner will know who signed it.

While police are uncertain of the monetary value of the baseball, they suspect it holds sentimental value.

If you have any information on the baseball, you can call the Victoria Police Department’s non-emergency line at 250-995-7654.
