Fans will still get a voucher

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The slumping New York Yankees were
big losers off the field Tuesday when thieves hijacked a shipment
of 47,000 caps scheduled to be given away this weekend at Yankee
Stadium.

Team spokesman Rick Cerrone had no additional details regarding
the robbery.

The Yankees have received about half the hats for the Cap
Weekend giveaway Friday and Saturday against Oakland. Fans not
receiving a cap will be given a voucher.

New York is playing a four-game series at Tampa Bay that
concludes Thursday.
