Mariano Rivera made the final Yankee Stadium appearance of his Hall of Fame career in the Bombers’ home finale, but it wasn’t the four outs he recorded that will be remembered for eternity.
Instead, it was the sight of Rivera crying uncontrollably on the mound while embracing his two Core Four teammates, who had been sent out by Joe Girardi with two outs in the ninth to make the pitching change that signaled the end of an era in the Bronx. “They both came to get me out and I was thankful they came out,” Rivera said. “I needed them there and they were there.”
