The day came about three months later than we expected, but Nationals players finally received their 2019 World Series Championship rings Thursday.

Patrick Corbin and Adam Eaton were the first to share their new jewelry on Instagram.

"I don't think that's going to fit on my finger!" Eaton said right after he opened the ring box.

Ryan Zimmerman follow with his own video Friday.

The Nationals originally planned to hold a virtual ring ceremony to give fans and players a chance to enjoy such a momentous moment, but they later altered that plan following feedback from the players. Instead, they decided to unveil their championship rings.

The 2020 season was delayed before it could begin thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, preventing the Nationals from holding a proper ring ceremony and banner unveiling in front of a sold-out Nats Park.

With two weeks to go before a 60-game regular-season schedule begins, the team has reconnected to get ready for an abbreviated title defense. Under the circumstances, this was the time to do it.
