Zimmer ceremony today

A ceremony to honor Don Zimmer, who died Wednesday, will be held before today's game, starting around 4 p.m.

Expect a video tribute, bagpipe music, unveiling of a ZIM patch the Rays will wear and an homage to the No. 23 Brooklyn Dodgers jersey Zimmer first wore.

Joe Torre, Jim Leyland, Lou Piniella, Tommy Lasorda and Andre Dawson are among the expected guests.

Sun Sports will televise the ceremony.

Per Zimmer's wishes, there will be no funeral or other memorial service.
