BANGOR, Maine—Police in Maine are investigating the theft of league championship rings and other items from the home of former major league baseball player Matt Stairs.

Stairs was in his native New Brunswick, Canada last weekend for his induction into the province's sports Hall of Fame when he got a call from his daughter telling him his Bangor home had been robbed.

Stairs tells the Bangor Daily News ( http://bit.ly/L70Ncb) the thief or thieves took jewelry, including his National League and American League championship rings. The World Series ring he won in 2008 with the Philadelphia Phillies was spared because he wore it to the induction ceremony.

Police have not made an arrest.

Stairs had a .262 batting average, with 265 home runs and 899 RBIs in a 19-year career with 12 teams.
