Uggla receives World Series ring from Giants

SAN FRANCISCO -- Nationals second baseman Dan Uggla received a nice gift from the Giants on Friday when Giants general manager Bobby Evans presented him with a World Series ring.

Uggla was with the Giants last year for two weeks before he was released in early August. Uggla has known since the offseason he was going to get the ring. They even asked about ring size.

"It's awesome. I know I was here for [two weeks], but I got an awesome ring out of it," Uggla said. "It's something no one can take away from me. I don't feel I'm deserving of it, but I was part of the organization in a short period of time."

Uggla is currently on the disabled because of back spasms. He said he is feeling much better and hopes to get in some Major League games soon.
