Cue Johnny Cash – Ring Of Honor

I don’t know why, but I keep getting Ring of Fire stuck in my head… anyway… Coinciding with the return of the bionic arm (aka Strasburg) and honoring Hall of Fame inductee and former Expo, Andre Dawson, the Nationals have instituted a “Ring of Honor” across the marquee area in front of the club level behind the PNC Diamond Club. I managed to get a sneak peak at it last night during “A Night At The Park” for the ziMS Foundation. Unfortunately (for multiple reasons), I didn’t bring my camera! Gah! So here are some iPhone photos taken during the live auction. The Harris and Johnson are not Willie and Nick, btw! Full press release after photos:

The Washington Nationals will honor Hall of Famers with ties to Washington’s baseball heritage by installing a Hall of Fame Ring of Honor at Nationals Park above the PNC Diamond Club directly behind home plate. The display, which features Hall of Famers from the Washington Nationals, Washington Senators, Homestead Grays and Montreal Expos, will be formally presented tonight during a special presentation recognizing Andre Dawson’s induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame before the Nationals take on the Florida Marlins at 7:05pm.

“The Washington Nationals are honored to pay tribute to all of those who’ve contributed so much to this city’s rich baseball heritage,” Nationals Principal Owner Mark D. Lerner said. “We are proud of where we’ve come from and where we’re headed, and for this reason, we’ve chosen to embrace members of all of the teams that have played a role in D.C.’s great baseball history.”

The Nationals partnered with the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown to develop the following criteria to honor Hall of Famers:

1) The player had to be elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

2) The player had to have played with the Washington Nationals, Washington Senators, Homestead Grays or Montreal Expos.

3) The player had to have played significant years with those teams.

It is with great pleasure that the Nationals honor the following individuals:
