Burglars broke into Kyle Kendrick's Washington home last week and stole the Phillies pitcher's 2008 World Series ring, according to a report in The Seattle Times.

Kendrick was in Florida for spring training when his Mount Vernon, Wash., home was burglarized. The Times report says the thieves broke into a locked safe in his house and stole numerous items of memorabilia.

From the story:

Detectives believe thieves spent several hours inside the home on Beaver Pond Drive South, because of the sheer volume of items taken. Thieves somehow broke into Kendrick's safe, where his 2008 championship ring was stored, and took a framed Ken Griffey Jr. jersey off the wall. Thieves also took baseball gloves and bats, items that were keepsakes from different stages in Kendrick's career, as well as televisions, computers and other high-end electronics, Cammock said.

Major League Baseball reported the ring contained 103 diamonds in a white-gold setting.

Cammock said that he doesn't know an appraisal price for the ring, but called it "priceless." He said that Kendrick had the ring insured.

It's not the first time a 2008 World Series ring has been stolen. Phillies director of publicity John Brazer had his stolen at Citizens Bank Park by a janitor in 2009 but it was later found and returned.
