Lost, Found, and Returned: A 2013 Red Sox World Series Championship Ring

On 24 July 2014, restaurant owner and New York Yankees fan Luigi Militello found a 2013 Red Sox World Series championship ring on a restroom sink in his Luke’s Bar and Grill in Manhattan. The ring was set in 14-carat white gold, with diamonds and sapphires and rubies — and a Boston Strong logo. Mr. Militello said, “I was like, geez, it’s big. Who would leave this here? I’m a big Yankee fan. What are the chances of this happening?” New York businessman Drew Weber, who owns the Lowell Spinners, a Red Sox Class A minor-league team in Massachusetts, had eaten at the restaurant earlier and left behind the ring by accident. Mr. Weber said that when he discovered that the ring was missing, “I went looking around my apartment and started having palpitations. Sweat was pouring off my forehead. I’m looking at my finger and it’s [the ring’s] not there.” He called Luke’s, and Mr. Militello said that yes, he had found the ring. There was some good-natured teasing back and forth about the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry, and the two men met the next day so that Mr. Weber could get his ring back. Mr. Weber and the Red Sox invited Mr. Militello to attend a game at Fenway Park on September 28 — that game is scheduled to be the final regular-season game for retiring Yankees star Derek Jeter. Mr. Weber also made a donation to a charity of Mr. Militello’s choice. Mr. Militello said said, “Going for his send-off, that’s pretty great.” Mr. Weber said, “The ring and Drew Weber have learned their lesson. That ring is going on no more road trips.”
