Legendary baseball broadcaster Vin Scully lost his 1988 Los Angeles Dodgers World Series ring while shopping at Costco this week, but later found the trinket in a bag of ribs.

Scully told the Los Angeles Times that he and his wife Sandi were doing some Christmas shooting at the Costco in Westlake Village, California, Tuesday when he realized his ring was missing. Scully has six World Series rings from his career with the Dodgers, but this one was the only one he hadn't gifted to his one of his children, the newspaper noted.

It happened as Scully was grabbing a bag of what he described as "Fred Flintstone-sized" ribs, stuffing the meat into plastic bags and piling it on top of an overflowing shopping cart.

When the couple returned to their vehicle after purchasing the food, he noticed that his ring was missing. The broadcaster said he returned to the store and told assistant general manager Elias Rahhal.

"I went into a panic," Rahhal told the Times. "I assured him we'd do everything to help find the ring; Vin is like family to us."

The Dodgers even sent out a message on Twitter asking fans to keep an eye out for the ring.



The Scullys returned home hoping someone would call in with information on the missing jewelry. But then, while unpacking the groceries, Sandi Scully found the ring at the bottom of the ribs bag.

The Dodgers let the world know that the ring was found nearly 10 minutes after it was reported missing.



"I feel like such a dummy," Scully told the Times. "Only Scully could lose a ring while putting meat in a bag."

A member of the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame, Scully completed his 65th season as the Dodgers' broadcaster this year.
