Kevin Brown has gone from hanging out large league batters to retiring would-be mail thieves.
The longtime main league pitcher seemingly put an finish to a current run of stolen mail in his north Macon, Georgia, neighborhood, apprehending a 15-year-old boy and one other man earlier than their arrests Wednesday.
According to a report by The (Macon) Telegraph, Brown hid in a neighbor’s yard and waited for the alleged thieves to swipe some mail. When they tried, Brown caught them, holding them at gunpoint till police arrived, officers on the scene instructed the newspaper.
There was no speedy phrase on what the costs had been.
Over his prolonged run on large league mounds, Brown received 211 video games, collected six All-Star nods and twice boasted the National League’s finest ERA (1996, 2000).
Now retired, the 53-year-old has one other title so as to add to his resume: neighborhood watchdog.
