Ringing In A New Year: Red Sox Ready For Fenway Opener

Before the defending champs take on the Milwaukee Brewers in their home opener, there is still some hardware to be dished out. The team will receive their 2013 World Series rings, the final time they’ll celebrate last season’s accomplishment.

Many will be receiving the first championship ring of their career. For Dustin Pedroia and Jon Lester, Friday will be a sequel to 2007′s World Series celebration and more bling for them to show off.

Then there is David Ortiz, who will be collecting his third World Series ring as a member of the Red Sox. For Big Papi, these celebrations never get old.

“I’m excited, who knows when we’ll get another one,” said Ortiz, who hit a ludicrous .688 in last year’s Fall Classic against the St. Louis Cardinals. “It’s just the appreciation for the way things went down last year. I’m excited, our hard work paid off.”
