BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The 2004 Red Sox championship team that "broke the curse" was honored at Opening Day at Fenway Park on Tuesday.

Before the season opener against the Baltimore Orioles, the Red Sox celebrated the 20th anniversary of the World Series-winning team.

During the pregame ceremonies, Boston lawmakers presented a "Reversed the Curse" sign to around 40 team members and commemorated Red Sox icons who have passed away since the last home game.

Players will also wear Wakefield's number 49 on their jersey sleeves throughout the season.
