TRENTON — An official New York Yankees World Series ring reported to be worth nearly $10,000 was stolen from the offices of the Trenton Thunder last week, the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office said yesterday.
The ring, which belonged to
an employee (our man Tonto), was left unattended in a desk drawer at the team’s Waterfront Park offices.
The Thunder are a minor-league affiliate of the Yankees.
According to authorities, the theft occurred between 1 p.m. on June 17 and 1 a.m. June 18.
The diamond-encrusted rings were distributed to all full-time Yankee employees following the team’s victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2009 World Series. It is described as blue and silver in color and prominently features a diamond-studded Yankees insignia on its face.
Anyone with information relating to the theft is asked to call Officer Chris Drew with the Sheriff’s Office at (609) 989-6111.
According to today’s Trentonian, the theft in Trenton “comes on the heels of news out of Tampa, Fla., where a coach for the Staten Island Yankees reported his World Series ring stolen earlier this month.
In that case, pitching coach Patrick Daneker told police that his championship ring was stolen by two women he had brought back to his hotel room after a night of drinking.”
Now that’s a tip!
