    A court-appointed trustee has barred former baseball star Lenny Dykstra from entering two California homes during bankruptcy proceedings, according to a published report.

    In a letter dated Sept. 11, a court-appointed trustee overseeing Dykstra’s bankruptcy proceedings issued the edict, saying: “It has come to our attention that the properties ... are being vandalized.”

    Dykstra owns two multimillion-dollar homes at Lake Sherwood, one formerly owned by hockey legend Wayne Gretzky.

    He allegedly went to the property and removed lighting fixtures, wood flooring and a La Cornue oven and cook top — which the Gretzkys installed for $51,750 — according to a bankruptcy court filing. Dykstra could not be reached for comment, but according to the New York Daily News he acknowledged removing some items, but denied selling them.
