PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - Any softball fan knows you can't steal first base, but someone should have told a thief in Prince George, B.C., that he shouldn't try to steal anything from one feisty senior.

The robber, described as overweight and wearing a puffy winter jacket, may have too closely resembled a softball when he broke into the senior's home late last week.

RCMP say the elderly woman grabbed a baseball bat and used the crook for batting practice, nailing him several times after he climbed into the house through a window.

He was going, going — gone, by the time Mounties arrived.

Police say they'd like to throw some heat, too, and want to hear from anyone who may have information about where the faux foul ball is recovering from possible arm, hand or torso injuries.

The would-be victim, meanwhile, is anything but — and is safe at home base. (CKPG)
