In addition to donating $300,000 to the victims of the mass shooting in Orlando, The Tampa Bay Rays launched a video memorial in their stadium last Saturday.

“While we didn't get the W on the field, we sure did off of it thanks to your generous donations,” the Facebook post by the sports team reads. “Here is the moving tribute played last night to memorialize the victims. ‪#‎WeAreOrlando”

The video, which is just over two minutes long, features still images of the aftermath of the massacre in addition to photos from around the world of vigils held in memory of the victims.

The video played to the song “Pulse” by Eli Lieb & Brandon Skeie, named after the nightclub where 49 lives were lost and 53 people were injured.

“I was at the game last night and swelled with tears throughout this entire tribute, and I wasn't the only one,” one Facebook user commented on the video. “Thank you for all your support to the victims, Orlando and LGBT community. Never prouder to be a Rays fan.”
