Estranged husband of Yankees co-owner selling Series rings

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) A former New York Yankees executive is selling his World Series rings.

Felix Lopez is the estranged husband of Yankees co-owner Jessica Steinbrenner, a daughter of late owner George Steinbrenner.

The auction house Hess Fine Art said Friday the six Series rings and league championship rings will go on sale online Wednesday at invaluable.com.

Lopez was a Yankees senior vice president from 2005-09. He then was an executive vice president until this year. He was in charge of daily operations at the team's spring training home and minor league complex in Tampa, Florida.

Jessica Steinbrenner and Lopez married in 2004. She filed a divorce petition in July in Florida and the matter is pending. She was granted a protective order Tuesday.
