Along with the normal pomp and circumstance that comes with the first home game of the season, the Tampa Bay Rays also had a pair of new additions to show off: the two championship banners for winning the American League East division and the American League pennant.

The team unveiled the banners in a ceremony before Friday’s game against the New York Yankees, and if you missed seeing it live, we have a perspective from being inside Tropicana Field.
