Minutes after arriving in Atlanta, ex-Braves closer Billy Wagner’s truck was stolen

ATLANTA — Billy Wagner delivered 422 saves during his 16-year MLB career, including 37 in an All-Star season with the Braves. Now, the retired left-hander is hoping to get one sent his way.

In Atlanta with Perfect Game USA for a showcase, Wagner arrived Wednesday night at 11:07 p.m. at his hotel, and minutes later, his Ford F-350 was stolen.

"Took my bag out, was talking to my wife, looked at my watch and said ‘My truck’s leaving,’" Wagner said during an appearance in the FOX Sports Southeast booth during Thursday’s Marlins -Braves series opener.

Former teammate Tim Hudson was also in the booth, and noted to Wagner "You shouldn’t have such a fancy car."

"It is highfalutin, (from) where I’m from," Wagner, replied.

"Highfalutin … what does that mean, exactly?" Hudson said.

"It runs," Wagner said. "It started on the first try."

Wagner went on to describe the truck, which is white with tan trim and blacked-out tries and rims.

"Spinners?" Hudson interjected, to laughter. "They’re spinning right now. … They’re spinning right now, buddy."

If the vehicle is recovered — Wagner noted that police told him it could be in the vicinity of Turner Field — Chip Caray has an idea how Wagner can get retribution.

"I suggested that whoever they catch, you have them stand in the batter’s box," Caray said.

"Well that’s not fair, now," said the 44-year-old Wagner.

Wagner played his final season — 2010 — in Atlanta and became an All-Star for the seventh time as he had a 1.43 ERA with 104 strikeouts and 22 walks over 69 1/3 innings. He converted all but six of his save attempts.
