1994 After being confiscated in the first inning of the Indians-White Sox contest at Comiskey Park, Albert Belle's bat, suspected of being corked, is placed in umpire Dave Phillips' locker for further examination. The theft of the questionable piece of lumber, taken and replaced by a burglar who gains access to the umpire's room by squirming through an overhead crawl space, a thievery Jason Grimsley confesses to five years later, is immediately discovered when pieces of ceiling tile litter the floor, and the name on the 'clean' bat now reads, Paul Sorrento.
