Major League Notebook

The Major League notebook …
PEORIA, Ill. ó A die-hard Chicago Cubs fan has found a 2011 World Series championship cap autographed by rival St. Louis Cardinals players ó and he wants to give it back.
Joe Couri tells the Journal Star in Peoria he was driving along Interstate 74 in central Illinois when traffic backed up because of an accident. He says he saw the hat among debris on an off-ramp.
The 38-year-old from Brimfield says the hat appears to be signed by David Freese, Yadier Molina, Jason Motte and other players.
Couri wants to return the hat to its owner. He says whoever comes forward will have to know about an unexpected signature on the hat or “have a picture of himself wearing it.”
ST. LOUIS ó Bob Forsch, the only pitcher in St. Louis Cardinals history to throw two no-hitters, has died at the age of 61.
Forsch, a 6-foot-4 right-hander known for clutch performances in crucial games, played on three World Series teams in the 1980s under Whitey Herzog.
Matty Alou, once part of an all-Alou outfield for the San Francisco Giants with brothers Felipe and Jesus, died in his native Dominican Republic. He was 72.
LOS ANGELES ó Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt must pay his former wife and ex-team CEO Jamie McCourt $131 million by the end of April as part of their divorce settlement.
ST. LOUIS ó Ryne Sandberg, ruled out earlier this week for the Chicago Cubs’ managing vacancy, is among the candidates who will be interviewing with the St. Louis Cardinals.
