Washington Nationals cancel virtual ring presentation
The Washington Nationals said Saturday they were cancelling plans for a virtual World Series ring ceremony, at the request of the players.
“The players collectively decided they would prefer to receive their rings when the team could be physically reunited,” a spokesman for the club said. “We support that decision.”
With the coronavirus pandemic delaying the start of the Major League Baseball season, the Nationals had made plans for a virtual presentation on Sunday.
The Nationals claimed their first World Series championship in October by beating the Houston Astros in seven games.
