Comedian George Lopez is buying championship rings for every member of the San Fernando High School baseball team.

The team won the Division One title last week at Dodger Stadium.

Many of the players simply couldn't afford the pricey rings and that's when Lopez stepped in.

Lopez is a San Fernando High School alum, having briefly played on the school's baseball team in the late 70s.

This year's championship was San Fernando's first in a decade.
