Doug Fister loses wedding ring on pitch, finds it in the dirt on mound (video)


Washington Nationals pitcher Doug Fister experienced a potentially troubling mishap at the conclusion of the top of 1st inning in his start against the Tampa Bay Rays when his wedding ring fell off his finger during the delivery of a pitch.

After striking out Evan Longoria to end the inning, Fister immediately began picking around on the mound, looking for the ring. It didn’t take long for him to located it, which presumably was quite the relief.


Fister was just married in November and interestingly, his wife posted a photograph to Twitter showcasing how a ring designed for people with more active lifestyles was far too small for her, as it was turning her ring finger purple.

Perhaps Fister should invest in one of those as well. He just needs to make sure it’s sized correctly.
