Legendary New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera has been showered with many gifts and honors on his farewell tour, each team choosing a unique way to celebrate Mo’s career in his final year as a big leaguer.
From throwing out the first pitch at Citi Field to receiving a larger-than-life-size painting of himself in Anaheim, each has been special in its own way.
New Era is getting in on the action with a commemorative Mariano Rivera cap, which may be available as early as next week.
There will be three different designs to choose from. Something tells me a lot of people will be picking up all three.
If any player is worthy of such an honor, it’s Mariano Rivera.
