An American League championship ring belonging to Chicago Cubs pitcher Matt Garza has been stolen from his California home, according to sheriff's detectives.

The ring, which has an estimated worth of $30,000, was taken during a burglary of Garza's Fresno County home between Jan. 26 and Tuesday, according to the Fresno Bee.

Awarded the ring as a result of beating the Boston Red Sox in the 2008 AL Championship Series as a member of the Tampa Bay Rays, Garza was the Most Valuable Player in the series.

Along with multiple white diamonds and one yellow diamond, Garza's name is engraved on the inside of it.
