In March New York Yankees great, and Major League Baseball’s all-time saves leader, Mariano Rivera announced this would be his final season in the big leagues. With each passing game we’re closer to the curtain coming down on one of the great careers in baseball history, one that will result in enshrinement in Cooperstown, NY.
Last season Chipper Jones received gifts as he made his way across the country, making stops in stadiums for the last time. Similar treatment awaits Rivera this year.
While in Detroit last month baseball’s greatest ever closer was presented with a picture of himself pitching at both Tiger Stadium and Comerica Park. Monday, the Yankees were at Progressive Field in Cleveland for a doubleheader with the Indians. During a ceremony between games Rivera was given something that’s only fitting from a team located in the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The next few stops on the Mariano Rivera Farewell Tour will be Oriole Park at Camden Yards (May 20-22), Tropicana Field (24-26), and Citi Field. (27-28).
