Red Sox receive World Series rings in pre-game ceremony

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - Fenway Park was all dressed up and ready to go for the Red Sox’s 114th home opener.

The beloved ballpark welcomed back the defending World Series champions, and the team received their World Series rings before the game kicked off at 2:05 p.m.

The pre-game ceremony included a moment of silence in tribute to Lt. Ed Walsh and firefighter Michael Kennedy, who lost their lives in last week's Back Bay fire.

Survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing appeared on the field, emerging from the Green Monster with ring boxes, which they presented to the team owners.

Red Sox players ran out from the dugout, one by one, to accept their rings.

The Red Sox went from Opening Day in Baltimore to the White House, for recognition of their championship season, and took the field today looking to keep the ball rolling for this team.
