Comedian George Lopez to buy baseball championship rings for San Fernando High

June 8, 2011 |  2:09 pm

Comedian and talk-show host George Lopez, who briefly played baseball at San Fernando High, has decided to pay for the players' championship rings won last weekend at Dodger Stadium, Coach Armando Gomez said Wednesday.

San Fernando won its first City Section Division I baseball title since 1991 on Saturday with an 8-6 victory over Chatsworth at Dodger Stadium.

"It's unbelievable, because the kids couldn't afford it," Gomez said.
