From the Springfield News-Leader :

A bronze bust of former Kansas City Royals third baseman George Brett (above) has apparently been stolen from outside the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame, 3861 E. Stan Musial Drive, a Greene County Sheriff™s Department spokesman said today.

Museum officials noticed the bust was missing today but think it was probably taken some time over the weekend, Sgt. Rick Mallory said.

Mallory said the bust was worth about $15,000, but he didn™t know how heavy it was.

œThat™s got to weigh a lot, but not necessarily so much that one person couldn™t carry it off, he said.
