BALTIMORE -

The Red Sox now are heading home to get their rings.

It's a new season, but the Boston Red Sox will look back a bit when they open their 2014 home schedule Friday versus the Milwaukee Brewers at 2:05 p.m. at Fenway Park. Boston also will celebrate its championship with some bling as they will receive their World Series championship rings in front of the Red Sox fans.

"It will be a great day to look back on a very, very special year," Red Sox manager John Farrell said.

Farrell also has a World Series ring from 2008, when he served as Boston's pitching coach under former manager Terry Francona. But Farrell said it's in a safe and has just worn that one once.

The skipper said he probably won't wear this large ring too much either. When talking about it, Farrell paused and then just smiled.

"I guess I'm not into bling," he said with a smile.
