Former Dodger David Price is Auctioning His 2020 World Series Championship Ring

Is anybody in the market for a Dodgers World Series ring? Well it is your lucky day as former LA LHP David Price is putting his up for sale.

As historic as the Dodgers’ postseason run in a year full of roadblocks was, Price is thinking of the bigger picture of the baseball world with this decision. It is not your normal auction where one just looks to profit off of their belongings for personal benefit.

The 37-year-old free agent is partnering with the Players Alliance in order to help raise money for upcoming baseball players and to address the sport’s systemic barriers to equity and inclusion in an effort to honor Jackie Robinson. The auction was first opened up on April 12 and ends on April 19.

“David has chosen to auction his World Series ring to raise money for the Players Alliance, an organization of 150 black current and former professional baseball players united to use their voice and platform. They create increased opportunities for the black community in the game and beyond.” (Via Players Alliance)

Price last suited up for the Dodgers from 2020-2022 but he was consistently on the injured list. He still posted a 2.45 ERA in the 40 games that he played last season and was still a serviceable option on the mound despite being older.

He was the number one pick in the 2007 draft and went on to become a two-time champion and Cy Young winner. He has yet to sign with another team as he waits to be fully healthy and has refused any plans of retirement.

However, it is amazing to see he is using his time away from the game right now to still give back to it and support the next generation of athletes.
