Boston • The Boston Red Sox have received their 2013 World Series championship rings.

They were presented Friday during a ceremony that also honored victims of the Boston Marathon bombing and two Boston firefighters who died in a fire last week.

As the ceremony began before the game against Milwaukee, banners for Red Sox championship teams from 1903, 1912, 1915, 1916, 1918, 2004, 2007 and 2013 were lowered from the top of the Green Monster.



Family members of victims who died in the bombing last April and survivors walked in from the left-field wall with the rings. Team officials presented them to players and other personnel. Then co-workers from the same station as Lt. Edward J. Walsh and firefighter Michael R. Kennedy walked into center field and stood beside the players.
