Former Red Sox Pitcher Scott Williamson To Auction Off World Series Ring

With all of the trouble that the Boston Red Sox have had to endure over the last month, it's hard to remember that just a few years ago, they were the World Series winners. Former Red Sox reliever Scott Williamson, will give one Red Sox fan an opportunity to own a valuable piece of memorabilia; his 2004 World Series Ring.

According to the Boston Herald, Williamson plans to auction off his 2004 World Series ring in order to finance an overbuilt home and an indoor baseball facility in his Ohio town. The auction will be conducted on October 25 by Everything But the House auctioneers and will start out with an opening bid of $1.

Letting go of his World Series ring was the lest thing he ever wanted to do, but Williamson wants to do whatever it takes to give back to his community and his family.

 "I can die with that World Series ring. But if I die and I have this (facility) and these kids, and I've helped make them better people, then my name and what I've done will mean more to me than that." (via Boston Herald)

Williamson made 28 appearances with the Red Sox in 2004 due to an elbow injury, posting a sizeable 1.28 ERA. Williamson last played in the majors in 2007 with the Baltimore Orioles.
