Pranksters plant tree in middle of baseball field

FRANKLIN, Ohio (AP) -- Pranksters are giving new meaning to "doughnut." Suspected jokesters caused a stir by planting a tree smack in between home plate and the pitcher's mound at an Ohio baseball field.

The Dayton Daily News says the tree was discovered Saturday at Franklin Community Park when Franklin High School players showed up for a doubleheader.

A photo of the lone tree taken 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 the city south of Dayton paid to remove the tree and repair the damage.

He says the person found responsible for the tree will get the bill.
