Several times we come across certain miracles, which make us realize that kindness among humans is not dead yet. According to the reports of Fox 26, a woman named Janie Arredondo revealed that her friend's father, Reynaldo Muñoz, who works as an employee at Minute Maid Park, had misplaced his 2022 World Series Championship ring when he briefly took it off to wash his hands at work. Munoz had no option but to rush to an "assistance call."

The customized ring, which had his name engraved on it, meant a great deal to Muñoz, who had worked at the park for 23 years. Arredondo told the outlet that Muñoz has rarely missed a day of work and was fortunate enough to attend Game 4 of the 2022 baseball World Series in Philadelphia. Muñoz was left devastated when he lost the ring in June 2023. When he was losing all his hopes of finding his prized possession, a miracle happened.



 

According to ABC 13 News, an 8-year-old boy named Neymar Davalos, who was attending his first Astros game, ended up becoming the one to reunite Muñoz with his precious ring. The ring, which was lost in a restroom while Muñoz had taken it off to wash his hands, was actually discovered by little Davalos, who handed it over to his dad.

"I really didn't think I was going to see it ever again, but I'm so glad they did the right thing," Muñoz said. "At the end of the day, it's the best thing you can ask for." Any Astro fan would be tempted to keep the ring for themselves, but the Davalos family knew what needed to be done, at the moment.



 

 



 

When Davalos and his dad came across a viral Facebook post about the lost ring made by Arredondo, they immediately got in touch with Muñoz to hand him over his prized possession. "He has worked for 23 years at MMP and this ring meant so much to him. The ring is very unique as it is personalized to every employee. His last name Muñoz is engraved on the side," Arredondo had written in the Facebook post.

Consumer reporter for ABC 13, Jeff Ehling, posted the moment on Twitter when the Davalos family met Muñoz to give back his ring. People also got emotional at the video, whereas others wondered if the boy got anything in return.

Thank God for these people for doing the right thing." @texanfan2002114 wondered: "Not to be a Debbie downer, but why didn't they turn it in to the lost and found at the stadium? I've seen people get their wallets and cell phones back from the lost and found."

@Stro4Life_2 applauded the young kid and commented: "What a wonderful blessing to the three of them, I hope this young boy understands what he has done and hopes he has a friend for life. Not to say maybe a few games for his birthday party with his young friends and family."



 

 



 

However, a vast majority of people lauded the strong moral compass of the Davalos family and how they ended up setting a positive example for their son as well as everyone who came across the story of Muñoz and his reunion with the lost ring. It's safe to assume that the father and son might have restored Muñoz's faith in honest people just when he was losing all hope to find his customized ring.
