The flamingos were valued at $150, according to police. When people donated to Little League, the flamingos would be placed in their yard with a sign reading, “You’ve been flocked.”

“What is a true shame is that this is a fundraiser for the Little Leaguers of Sturbridge,” the baseball association stated online, according to MassLive. “This is great unique fundraiser and is something we’d like to keep going.”
