Gonzalez joined the team when he was signed as a catcher in 2008 and played from 2009-11 for the Dominican Summer League (Red Sox). Gonzalez then transitioned to coaching for the team in 2012 becoming a full-time coach in 2013.
That same year (2013), he was awarded a World Series Championship ring for his contributions to the organization. Jostens stepped up their game with this ring as they relay to it’s recipients:
“This was way more than baseball. This was a championship season, played for your team and for all of Boston. You rallied. You cheered. You helped bring the Commissioner’s Trophy to Fenway Park just when the city needed it most. Stronger each game, the Red Sox emerged as World Series Champions and all of Boston won.”
This is a men’s Silver Elite Boston Red Sox 2013 Championship ring, made by Jostens. It weighs in at 45 grams. The top of the ring is embossed, “BOSTON RED SOX WORLD CHAMPIONS 2013”. The pave set into the corners of top and around the base of the top has a total of 126 round brilliant cut DIAMONDS! It should be noted, this ring is special and unlike the few on the market that only featured CZs. This one has real diamonds with an estimated weight of 2 carats (all VS-2 to SI-1 clarity and F/G color).
It is a channel set on the top side featuring the Commissioner’s Trophy with a total of 16 synthetic straight baguette cut sapphire gemstones. The trophy is set on top of a lab created blue spinel tablet. The top of the trophy is the Boston Red Sox logo set with nine custom cut natural ruby gemstones. The ruby weight estimate is 2.5 carats all with medium dark red color and slightly included clarity.
The left flank is embossed with a circular “Boston Strong” logo. The B is filled with red enamel with the words “2013” [year] embossed below the logo. The left flank has his name embossed, “GONZALEZ” with Fenway Park and the abbreviation “MIN LG”.
The inside of the ring features the engraving of the Jostens logo and an iconic “Bearded Man” image along with the words, “BEARDED BROTHERS 10-30-13.”
The original custom box is also included with the detailing etched into the top portion and his name below – ALY GONZALEZ. When the box is opened, LED lights highlight the ring centered by a magnetic holder.
