Red Sox get their World Series rings in a special pregame ceremony

Apr 4, 2014, 2:30 PM EDT

Fenway Park

The Red Sox’ home opener is today and before the game they were presented with their World Series rings. But it wasn’t just the ordinary presentation with the team owner giving them their jewelry. The rings were carried out on to the field by people associated with the Marathon bombing last year. Families of victims, firefighters and other first responders.

Say what you want about the Red Sox, but they do a fantastic job of connecting with their community in meaningful ways. There is just not a team that any closer of a relationship with its city than do the Red Sox. Just makes moments like this pretty perfect.

And, for the record, here are the rings:

Not exactly understated, but compared to the World Series banner they unveiled before the game it’s practically reserved:

    They invited Jarrod Saltalamacchia to fly up for the ceremony and offered to fly him back again afterwards so he’d be back in Macondo in time for the Feesh’s 7PM game with the Pods. Classy. Salty declined because he didn’t want to take the chance of something going wrong and being late for the game. Also classy.

    Yasiel, are you paying attention?

      Please tell me Jarrod’s done something with his hair, now that he’s out of Boston. And Miami’s not know for its dry heat.

      If he ever caught Buccholz on a humid day, that might have been the ugliest battery in baseball history.

      Nice comment until the last sentence, then you go all dummy on us. Yup, Yasiel Puig, worst monster in all of pro sports.
