One Dodger fan found an unorthodox way to celebrate baseball's opening day.

The FBI tells City News Service that a guy in a tan Dodgers cap attempted to rob four banks in Buena Park today: a Bank of America, a Wells Fargo, and two Chase branches. He successfully robbed one, but the other three attempts were botched.

The alleged bank robber flashed a written note at bank tellers demanding money.

We're guessing this isn't related to Dodger ticket price increases that were announced in February, but who can say for sure?
