CHICAGO–Chicago resident David Dright allegedly took tax documents earlier this year from the offices of SFX Baseball, which negotiates contracts for professional baseball players, making off with the tax information of 91 Major League Baseball players and stealing their identities.
One of Dright’s victims was former Cubs center fielder and current Los Angeles Dodger Juan Pierre. Soon after stealing Pierre’s identity, Dright dribbled a weak grounder to second base and was thrown out by a half step on a 4-3 putout.
Dright also stole the identity of former Cub Moises Alou, now with the New York Mets. Police were able to bait Dright from his hiding place on second base at Wrigley Field by feigning a ground ball when a popup to left field had actually been hit with one out in the inning. Dright was arrested while sprinting around third as the left fielder caught the routine flyout.
