A former Sooner baseball pitcher is desperate to locate his College World Series baseball ring after it was stolen from his house.

“It was my year down at OU and we were one of the top eight teams in the nation to get to go play in that tournament,” Ryan Gibson said.

Gibson always had his 2010 College World series ring to commemorate his experience.

However, Monday, that precious ring disappeared. Gibson says his Oklahoma City home was broken into and ransacked.

“They took two 55-inch TVs, they took both my guns they took two Xboxes, three or four Coach purses,” Gibson said.

Despite the prices, Gibson says none of those things mean as much to him as his ring.

“They can't take away the time and the memory and stuff that was associated with it, but it almost feels like they took a piece of it,” Gibson said.

Gibson says he and his roommates called police but aren't having much luck with evidence so far.

The home's alarm system never went off during the burglary.

Gibson is hoping someone notices his ring somewhere out there and brings it back to him.

“I just want people to be on the lookout for that ring to try to get it back.  It's very unique. It’s very identifiable, and it's not something easy to get ahold of.  The other stuff you can save up and buy back,” Gibson said.
