Sport

The Nationals announced on Tuesday that the organization will hold a virtual ceremony to unveil their 2019 World Series rings on Sunday, May 24. It will be broadcast on MASN, MLB Network, the Nationals’ YouTube channel, the Nationals’ Facebook page, and the Nationals’ website.

The Athletic’s Brittany Ghiroli provides more details. Players and coaches will join a Zoom call, ostensibly discussing the importance of the championship. They will receive their rings in the mail shortly thereafter.

Last October, the Nationals emerged victorious in seven games to win the World Series over the Astros, winning Game 7 6-2. It is the franchise’s first championship. Stephen Strasburg was named World Series MVP as he limited the Astros to four earned runs on 12 hits and three walks with 14 strikeouts in 14 1/3 innings during his two starts.
