The 2004 Boston Red Sox were honored at Fenway Park on Tuesday for Opening Day — and the former players took the moment to remember their late teammate, Tim Wakefield.

Brianna Wakefield, who lost her father last October as well as her mother, Stacy, in February, threw the ceremonial first pitch to Jason Varitek as members of the Red Sox championship team stood behind her on the mound.

Later, Brianna, 17, hoisted the championship trophy along with her brother Trevor, 19, and they hugged their father’s former teammates.

The team held a moment of silence for the Wakefields, along with former Red Sox president Larry Lucchino, who died last week. The late Billy Gardner, Dick Drago, Jimy Williams and Arthur D'Angelo were also honored, according to ABC affiliate WCVB-TV.

Tim, 57, died last October and his wife, Stacy, died in February.

Both had been diagnosed with different forms of cancer, according to retired MLB pitcher Curt Schilling, who revealed the couple’s diagnoses against their wishes last September.

Schilling, 57, had said on podcast his last fall  that Tim — who was his teammate on the Red Sox from 2004 to 2007 — had been diagnosed with an “aggressive form of brain cancer” and that Stacy had pancreatic cancer.

After Schilling shared the news without the couple's permission, the Red Sox requested privacy on behalf of the Wakefields in a statement obtained by PEOPLE at the time.

"It is with deep sadness that we share that our beloved mother, daughter, sister, niece, and aunt, Stacy, passed away today at her home in Massachusetts. She was surrounded by her family and dear friends, as well as her wonderful caretakers and nurses. The loss is unimaginable, especially in the wake of losing Tim just under five months ago. Our hearts are beyond broken."

The statement continued, “We will remember Stacy as a strong, loving, thoughtful and kind person, who was as down-to-earth as they come. We feel so lucky to have had her in our lives, and we take comfort in the fact that she will be reunited with Tim, the love of her life.”

The All-Star knuckleballer won the World Series twice while playing 17 seasons on the Red Sox. He retired in 2012 less than a year after notching his 200th career win at the age of 45.

Tim is also being remembered for what he did off the field.

“He did so much for charity and didn't ask for cameras to show up," longtime teammate Derek Lowe told CBS affiliate WBZ. “He did it for all the right reasons."
