Watch Mariano Rivera’s Emotional Departure from the Yankees
The New York Yankees gave Mariano Rivera one of the most emotional sendoffs in baseball history as Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte walked to the mound to remove Rivera one last time as a Yankee.
Rivera wept as he walked to the dugout, waving to fans who were cheering “We want Mo.” An entire stadium, including opposing team, Tampa Bay Rays gave Rivera a standing ovation filled with applause as he left the field.
Throughout his career Rivera racked up 652 saves and has been a member of five World Series championship teams making him one of the best closers in baseball history.
Admit it. You cried.
