The Nats aspired to go 1-0 every day during their World Series run.

The Baby Shark song was the rallying cry as the Nats turned their season around in late May thanks to the antics of utility man Gerardo Parra.

When the Nats finally won, they considered their “fight finished.”

On the inside of the ring, the results of each playoff series are commemorated.

The World Series ring was the first in Nationals history.

The baseball season would have been celebrating the end of its second month if it had started on time. But because the season was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, celebrations have been taking place online.

While the Nats originally planned to have a virtual World Series championship ring presentation on Sunday night, players decided they would rather wait to do it in person.

Instead, selected Nationals players, members of the front office and Commissioner Rob Manfred took part in a virtual ring unveiling Sunday night.

Jeweler Jostens created the ring for the Nats, who won the World Series to cap an improbable run that started around Memorial Day 2019. The Nats won the crown in Houston on the night of Oct. 30, 2019.

The ring is crafted from 14-karat white and yellow gold and includes 30 rubies in honor of the team’s 30 runs scored in its four World Series wins over the Houston Astros last fall.

There are also 58 diamonds and 32 sapphires. The combination of the gems represents various key numbers from the championship season.

The design also alludes to some of the key elements of the season, including an image of Baby Shark and the slogan “fight finished.”
