Ex-Astros Pitcher Willing To Return His 2017 World Series Ring

As each day goes by, it seems unlikely that Major League Baseball will take further action against the Houston Astros. This also means fans and players around Major League Baseball have and will be more vocal about this whole situation.

One member of the 2017 title-winning team is willing to play his part in stripping the team of the championship. Ken Giles, who was a reliever on the 2017 team, said he would return his World Series ring in the wake of the cheating scandal. Here is what he said to Rosie DiManno of The Star:

“It just hurts,” Giles said,via Rosie DiManno of The Star. “If they want it back, I’ll be true to whatever needs to be done.
“Whatever they ask, I would oblige. Because what was going on at the time was not OK.”

Even though Giles was on that championship team, he said he was unaware of the sign-stealing operation since he sat in the bullpen until he appeared late in games.

"I was not aware about anything," he said. "It crushed me to learn about the stuff that went on when I was there. I had no idea. ...I was blindsided by the commissioner's report. Up until then, I honestly didn't believe it."
