DAVID GREENE, Host:

Good morning. I'm David Greene.

Last week, we told you that Stomper was missing his head. Stomper is the bear mascot for the Lake Erie Crushers, an Ohio minor league baseball team. Well, good news. Team officials found the bear head under a tarp at the stadium. The team assumes that someone quietly returned it. The bear was still smiling and wearing his Crushers baseball cap. The season is over, but to reassure fans, Stomper showed his face at a beer festival at the stadium over the weekend. It's MORNING EDITION.
