Pitcher to get World Series ring no matter who wins

5:05 am on 23 October 2011

No matter whether the St. Louis Cardinals or Texas Rangers win baseball's World Series, pitcher Arthur Rhodes will come away with a championship ring.

The 41-year-old relief pitcher was dopped by the Rangers in August but then picked up by the Cardinals, his ninth Major League baseball team.

Although Rhodes will finally get a championship ring, he makes no secret that his allegiance lies with St Louis.
