The Washington Nationals unveiled the design of their 2019 World Series championship ring on Sunday after players nixed a plan to hold a virtual ring presentation ceremony, an approach brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.
Initially, the Nationals announced that they were going to give out the rings during a show to be broadcast on television and online.

They changed course after players decided that they would rather wait and receive their new jewelry when they could reunite in person.
The show was planned for Sunday, May 24, because of the date’s significance in last year’s title run. A year ago, Washington went into the day with a 19-31 record before starting a turnaround that led to the franchise’s first World Series appearance and championship.
