    Even though it wasn't found on their property, officials at Busch Stadium are fielding calls about a diamond ring found after World Series Game 6.

    The ring was discovered by an usher, while walking to his car after the game. Tom Saito said he noticed the ring while walking south of the stadium near 7th and Cerre, close to Kilroy's Bar.

    "I was just looking down at the sidewalk and happened to notice something odd," said Saito. "So I stopped and picked it up and it was this ring."

    Saito said it appears to be an engagement ring.

    "It's got diamonds on it. I have taken it to some jewelry stores to see if they can help me identify the owner," said Saito. "They verified it is a diamond, so I'm going through this hassle to find who owns it."

    Saito said he has not asked any jewelers about the ring's value.

    "Jewelers have told me there is a certification number on the inside of the ring," said Saito. "The jewelers I've been to know of tracking numbers, but this is not their number."

    Saito is going to a lot of trouble to find the ring's owner.

    "I want to get it back to the person. I think it's special to them."

    Saito said he has a feeling it belongs to someone who either was at the game, or came down afterwards to celebrate.

    But what if the owner is not a Cardinal fan.

    What if they're from Texas?

    "Then I never found it," he said, laughing. "Just kidding. I would still give it to them."

    Over the course of the past season, the Cardinals handled more than 2,400 "found" items, left behind after ballgames. Those include 133 bags, 55 sets of binoculars, 198 cell phones, 57 sets of keys, 9 purses, and 64 wallets.

    The keeper of the lost and found at Busch Stadium is Stadium Operations Assistant Ashly Moore. You can leave a message on the stadium lost and found voicemail at 314-345-9882.
