KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A 50-year-old Wisconsin banker who snatched bunting from Royals Stadium during the 1985 World Series has returned the keepsake to its rightful owner.

Jerry Kuehl was a senior at University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire when his roommate scored World Series tickets from an aunt in Overland Park, Kansas. Kuehl told The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/1tJujXk) that even though he was a Milwaukee Brewers fan, he cheered for the home-team Royals in their 3-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.

After the game Kuehl was standing near the foul pole where the 8-foot-long bunting flapped. He says he couldn’t resist taking it down and folding it beneath his jacket.

Kuehl sent the banner back the day after the Royals’ Wild Card Game win, along with a $250 check to Royals Charities.
