The scooter of San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence has been returned.
During the Giants 5-0 win over the Chicago Cubs the scooter was brought to AT&T Park after someone turned it into a police station. Relief pitcher Juan Gutierrez informed Pence of the news.
“He was like, ‘They got your scooter!'” Pence said.
Pence is not sure who returned his scooter and since he never filed a criminal complain the police will not pursue the alleged thief.

Pence already had purchased a new $4,000 scooter but has plans for the returned one.
“Maybe we’ll put the scooter up for auction so we can do something good in the community,” said Pence. “See, this is one of those `Together we’re Giant’ stories. Everybody had my back so much. So maybe this is a way to do something for charity.”
“Maybe we’ll give it to the police officer who brought it in,” said Pence, who was told the scooter was turned in anonymously to a station.
On the season Pence is hitting a robust .290/.368/.459 with six home runs and 40 runs scored.
