The man who stole a dog hat at a Dodgers hat shop claims he’s been working for the team since 1995 and the hat was a gift from a Dodgers fan.
The man who took the hat to a store on Thursday said he was working for a company called Dodger Hat Store and that the hat, a hat made by the Dodgers and worn by David Ortiz, belonged to him.
“I just love the Dodgers,” the man said, according to the LA Times.
“That’s why I’ve been working here for 15 years.”
The man said he never intended to steal the hat.
The Dodgers’ spokesman said the company does not comment on specific cases.
