FRANKLIN, Ohio (AP) - Suspected pranksters have caused a stir by planting a tree at a southwest Ohio park in a particularly inconvenient spot: in the baseball field, smack between home plate and the pitcher’s mound.

The Dayton Daily News (https://bit.ly/1QH9PMB ) reports the tree was discovered Saturday at Franklin Community Park when Franklin High School players showed up for a doubleheader. A photo taken then by a player has circulated on social media.

Officials with Franklin City Schools are trying to determine who’s responsible for the prank. Superintendent Michael Sander says vandalism or criminal damaging won’t be condoned or tolerated.

Sander says the city about 20 miles south of Dayton paid to remove the tree and repair the damage. But he says anyone found responsible for the tree will get the bill.
