The saying "stealing home plate" is taking on a whole new meaning in eastern Wisconsin. Detectives are investigating a series of reports of stealing home, literally.

Home plates have been stolen from baseball diamonds in a handful of towns in northern Milwaukee. Most of them are from diamonds in the North Shore high school conference.

One of the plates can't be replaced it was a Miller Park plate given as a gift.

Authorities have no leads on who's stealing home.
