Given his long journey back to the big leagues from five years of baseball obscurity to world champion last season, the San Francisco Giants right-hander has good reason to flash his bling.

Vogelsong's story is well-documented. From Giants draft pick in 1998 to being traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2001 to being released after the 2006 season, after which he went on to play in Japan through the 2009 season. Upon returning to the U.S., he toiled in the minor leagues in 2010 and in 2011 and got called up early in the season by the Giants from Triple-A Fresno.
