Mariano Rivera is continuing his farewell tour this week as the New York Yankees visit the Texas Rangers. Rivera has been giving back to the baseball community by meeting and talking to behind-the-scenes employees at each park he visits. On Tuesday, he had a meet-and-greet with members of the outside grounds complex crew at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. For these employees, the opportunity to spend time with a legend like Mo must be a dream come true.
The Rangers will honor Rivera in a pregame ceremony before Thursday’s game.
