Washington Nationals assistant general manager Bob Miller has put his 2001 World Series ring up for auction to help colleague Doug Harris, who is battling leukemia for a second time.

Miller was director of baseball operations for the Arizona Diamondbacks when they won the title in 2001. His ring is part of an auction assembled by Nationals players, with all proceeds benefiting treatment for Harris, who's also an assistant GM with the club.

"I’ve got the memories from 2001, but the physical ring means nothing," Miller told Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. "It’s sitting in a vault. I’m proud of it, but I don’t need it."

Harris has been fighting leukemia since July. His wife, Lisa, has already helped to raise more than $150,000 through a GoFundMe campaign. Her goal is to raise $400,000 for CAR T-cell therapy treatment for her husband.

As of Friday morning, the current highest bid on Miller's ring is $11,000.
