Sometimes the best sports stories have nothing to do with sports at all.
Bob Miller, the Assistant General Manager of the Washington Nationals, has a World Series ring from his time with the 2001 champion Arizona Diamondbacks. He's incredibly proud of the ring and keeps it locked in a vault, but he's hoping to get rid of it in order to help his friend and colleague.
Doug Harris, who is another Assistant GM with the Nationals, is undergoing treatment for leukemia. His wife is trying to raise money for him to be able to afford a very expensive cell treatment that could save his life.
Miller is trying to help out as much as he can so he's selling his World Series ring in an online auction. He says, "I’ve got the memories from 2001, but the physical ring means nothing. It’s sitting in a vault. I’m proud of it, but I don’t need it.”
The current bid is at $11,000. The winning bidder will also get to pick up the ring from Nationals slugger Bryce Harper. (USA Today)
