Kendrick's Stolen W.S. Ring Found

Good news for Kyle Kendrick -- he can look like a champion again.

The Phillies righty's stolen World Series ring was recovered Tuesday night in Washington while investigators were working on an unrelated burglary case, according to Mount Vernon Police Lt. Chris Cammock.

Six people have been arrested since mid-April in connection to the taking of a bunch of things including Kendrick's World Series ring from his Washington State home. Only two of the people arrestees (Glyzinski and Kevan Ridge) have been identified.

But the ring stolen during the burglary, which happened sometime between March 30 and April 1, wasn't immediately recovered.

During an investigation by the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, Kendrick's ring was found in the possession of 33-year-old Arlington Washington, Cammock said.

It wasn't clear if Washington is a suspect in the Kendrick home burglary.

Kendrick, a Mount Vernon native, had already gotten his 2009 National League Championship ring back.

The burglars allegedly broke through a locked door, managed to avoid tripping the alarm and spent a good amount of time in the home as they snatched up home electronics, memorabilia and one very precious ring, cops said.

Besides Kendrick’s engraved 3.84-karat ring 2008 World Series ring, the burglars allegedly grabbed other Kendrick baseball mementos, a framed autographed jersey from former Mariners star Ken Griffey Jr. and a Nolan Ryan jersey, cops said.

It isn't known when Kendrick will get his ring back but police did get a hold of him before Wednesday night's game at home against Colorado to let the hurler know his ring was found. Kendrick was ecstatic to hear the news, cops said.
