MLB Player’s Cadillac Escalade Stolen in Chicago
Chicago White Sox pitcher Scott Carroll might be purchasing a new vehicle to go along with his recent promotion to the big leagues, but it’s not by choice.
Carroll started 19 games for the White Sox in 2014 and was with the team again this season until being sent down to the minor leagues in early August. Unfortunately, Carroll thought he would be called right back up at the beginning of September, so he made the poor decision of leaving his Cadillac Escalade parked on a city street in Chicago.
That proved to be a very bad choice.
Carroll didn’t get called up with everyone else and had to wait all the way until September 16th to rejoin the White Sox. By that time it was too late: somebody had stolen his prized Escalade.
You might think that if you play in the major leagues and can afford an SUV with a 6.2-liter V8 engine good for 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, that you could afford to buy storage space for your Cadillac, right?
Carroll has reportedly called local tow yards in an effort to locate his vehicle, but so far has come up empty.
The pitcher has also released the SUV’s Missouri license plate number to the public: UE6K06.
On the bright side, this will give Carroll the chance to upgrade to a newer model Cadillac, maybe something like the 2016 Cadillac CT6 that was recently showcased in China.
Carroll hasn’t completely given up on his Escalade yet and has asked the community for their help to find his SUV.
“[It was] stolen near Wicker Park off of Damen Avenue, so if anyone knows of a Cadillac Escalade driving around there, that would help out,” Carroll said. “I was gone in Charlotte the whole time, and it was stolen while I was gone. I came back to get my stuff and drive back home, and it was gone.”
