Vandals have targeted the baseball field at a high school in Omaha, Neb., destroying and stealing property. 

The Central High School team said last weekend that its field at Boyd Park had its bleachers cut, the batting turtle was stolen and its gates were removed, KETV-TV reported. The Eagles also say someone drove through the outfield, tearing up the turf.

The Eagles posted about the vandalism on Twitter.

"Dear Neighbors of Boyd Park," the team tweeted. "The Central Baseball Mission Statement states that our purpose is to provide competitive baseball at an affordable price to kids of all ages." Central Baseball said the vandalism affects that mission.

The team also posted photos of the destruction, including vehicle tracks from someone driving on the field.

The Omaha World-Herald reported that Jerry Kreber, the school’s baseball coach said rewards for reporting criminal behavior at the field “include helping kids, sleeping well at night, and liking what you see in the mirror. Go Eagles!”
