It took just a few hours for a World Series ring to be lost and found in Ocean City.

Ocean City Police frame the incident as a wonderful all-American story in America's Greatest Family Resort:

Great job to all involved - well, except for former major league player Brant Alyea. We won't call this an error, we'll wait for the officer scorer to decide.

TRIVIA: Alyea is one of only 9 major leagues to hit a home run on the first pitch he ever saw! According to Baseball Reference, Alyea, a Rutherford NJ native,  played for the Washington Senators, Minnesota Twins, Oakland A's, and the St. Louis Cardinals.
