LOS ANGELES A man faces criminal charges for allegedly stealing a uniform from Dodger Stadium and posing as one of the team's players.
Ronald Higgins pleaded not guilty to several charges Friday, including burglary and trespassing.
The 47-year-old Higgins was arrested Wednesday morning after a security guard found him walking on the field in a Dodgers uniform and holding a glove with two balls. Higgins allegedly identified himself as a Dodgers player, but the guard recognized him from an earlier incident and called police.
Prosecutors say Higgins' clothes were later found in the bat boys' locker room. It was not immediately clear where he got the uniform.
If convicted, Higgins could spend nearly four years in state prison.
Attempts to locate an attorney for Higgins were not successful Friday night.
Made me think of a better headline:
“Man removes brain, poses as senator.”
just Ronny being...um...Manny.
Andruw Jones did that all year.
1) Man steals Dodger uniform and is sentenced to 400 years hard labor.
2) OJ kills 2 people, and gets off.
“Waddya in for?”
“Impersonating a ballplayer.”
“Whoa. I don’t want any trouble, man. Just askin’.”
I believe there are a lot of ballplayers on ball fields, gridirons and courts all over the USA.

His manhood was never questioned.
(Can I BUY a rim-shot around here?)
When I saw the title I thought it could have been Andruw Jones. (or perhaps Jason Schmidt?)
But never was one paid so much ($18 million) for so little (3 HRs, .158 Avg., .505 OPS).
Man accused of posing as Dodger on fieldWhoopee!
If convicted, could spend nearly four years in state prison.
Field of Dreams. Can’t a man enjoy his dream without being sent to prison? I see a man whose life has been a disappointment for whatever reason. He wanted to be a baseball player, but something prevented him from realizing that dream. He simply grabbed a opportunity to feel what it would be like to stand on that field and, in his mind, he hears the roar of the crowd as he holds the ball he has just caught for an out. Have a heart, give the guy a break. (So, I’m an incurable romantic)
