Red Sox Honor Mariano Rivera

Sunday, September 15, 2013 8:48 PM

Mariano Rivera’s farewell tour continued today at Fenway Park. Sure, they’re a fierce rival, but they have the upmost respect for Mo. They started his ceremony with the Boston Cello Quartet playing the National Anthem followed by Enter Sandman.

They then presented him with the first in a series of gifts. First was a painting of him being introduced at Fenway.

Gift #2 was the placard that was used on the scoreboard for when Mariano pitched.

Gift #3 was a seat from Fenway. Of course it was seat 42.

A pitching rubber from the visitor’s bullpen was gift #4.

The final gift was a check from the Red Sox owners to Mariano’s charity.

All in all it was an incredible ceremony.
