A strangely planned Washington Nationals virtual ring ceremony won’t go ahead as scheduled after players objected to some aspects of it.

The Nationals intended to hand out rings over the weekend as part of a virtual ceremony. However, only a handful of players were expected to get their physical rings, which did not sit well with players.

The team will go ahead as scheduled with the unveiling of the ring design, as well as a documentary premiere and a fundraiser.

This seems like a no-brainer. Nobody is going to be hurt by waiting a little longer, and it seems deeply unfair that some players would get their rings before others. 

When you see how much fun these guys had together, it only makes sense to wait until a time when everyone can celebrate in person and get their rings at the same time.
