(WRIC) — The wait is finally over for the Washington Nationals as the organization will receive their World Series championship rings Sunday night in a virtual ceremony.

“We’ll be bringing fans up close and personal with the team in a way that wouldn’t be possible in a typical ring ceremony,” said Mark Lerner, managing principal owner of the Washington Nationals.

The 7 p.m. Sunday ceremony will be broadcast on television and online.

Washington was originally scheduled to receive their rings at April 4 at Nationals Park before the coronavirus pandemic delayed the 2020 season.

Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association are currently in negotiations regarding games being played this year.
