SEE IT: Gerardo Parra finally gets time with World Series trophy originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

Gerardo Parra had to wait over 13 months to get the World Series trophy the Washington Nationals won back in November 2019, but once he carefully opened the special box in which it came, the moment was glorious. 

During the Nats' championship run, Parra was a fan favorite and brought great energy to the clubhouse, thanks in large part to his "Baby Shark" walk-up song that galvanized the D.C. fanbase. When Parra received his World Series ring 10 weeks ago, of course, he made sure to feature a baby shark toy along with it. 

The Venezuelan outfielder signed with Japan's Yomiuri Giants a month after winning the first title of his MLB career. Finally getting the chance to show off his new hardware in the comfort of his own home, Parra's trophy setup was masterful as he placed the Commissioner's Trophy in between the two Golden Glove awards he won back while a member of the Diamondbacks. 

Parra will always be remembered for his contributions in his short time with the Nationals. He even got this intricate tattoo shortly after winning the title. 

If there was sound on this video, it surely would have been the Baby Shark tune, right?
