More than a few years ago I recall a news item regarding a major heist of the week-end gate of the Oakland A's. It was amazing how much money was left over the week-end. I am interested in the date and details of this theft.

Hello. The heist occurred on Sunday, July 21, 1991, when concessions manager Thomas E. Hagins made off with $773,000 in cash from a safe at the Oakland Coliseum. A lot of cash was on hand because the A's had just finished a heavily attended weekend series against the New York Yankees. Hagins was captured a few days later in Dallas, Texas. He was flown back to Oakland where he pleaded guilty to grand theft.
