Fuld's backpack stolen after fishing excursion

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Sam Fuld reported to camp on Friday with a story about having experienced a nightmare earlier in the week.

After filming a fishing segment for Charlie Moore's "The Mad Fisherman" television show in Fort Lauderdale on Tuesday, they returned to Moore's vehicle only to find that it had been vandalized.

Fuld's knapsack was among the stolen items, which was unfortunate since it contained his cell phone, wallet and car keys.

"It was quite an ordeal," Fuld said.

The outfielder has since spent considerable time trying to clean up the episode, including time spent working with MLB security, which has helped him out this week.
