The owner of Nolan's Pub in Safety Harbor has put out a BOLO (Be On the Look Out) for their prized adult softball league trophy.

"It is not just a trophy but one that has been passed around for years from winning team to winning team," says bar owner Craig Davide, adding that it is actually several trophies glued together, and, because it's been forged by members of Safety Harbor's restaurant business for many years, the trophy has a cast iron frying pan attached to the bottom.

It's a distinct trophy, and a special part of the Safety Harbor community.

Its sudden disappearance has Davide dismayed. He helped start the league four years ago.

In hopes of just having the trophy returned, Davide is asking that whoever took the trophy return it, no questions asked, to either their pub or one of the other participating softball league bars and restaurants, which include Harbor Bar, Whistle Stop, Southern Fresh, Cantina, Sandwich on Main, and 8th Ave.

Davide tells ABC Action News that the trophy was actually won this past weekend by the team members of Sandwich on Main, and they were out celebrating when the trophy suddenly went missing.

Davide thinks someone from the community took the trophy.

 "We would just like to have it back. It's really worthless to anyone else except us," says Davide, whose bar is at 230 Main Street in Safety Harbor.
