SALEM, Va. (WDBJ7) The community continues to honor the memory of our friends and coworkers, Adam Ward and Alison Parker, with the Salem Red Sox renaming their press box in honor of the two Friday.

The team held a ceremony Friday afternoon, unveiling the plaque outside of the press box as a way to have a permanent tribute to Adam and Alison.

Since last August, the team has taken on several initiatives to honor their memory, but wanted a permanent, lasting memorial.

"The way we all react is this happened to our community. This happened to all of us. I think that's how the reaction was. That this was, it felt very personal. In those instances you want to do something, anything you can,” Salem Red Sox general manager Ryan Shelton said.
