Dear Commons Community,
It was a special night at Yankee Stadium when baseball’s most acclaimed relief pitcher, Mariano Rivera, made an emotional exit in his final appearance at the big ballpark in the South Bronx. Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte came to the mound to remove him with two outs in the ninth inning on Thursday night.
“It’s time to go,” Jeter appeared to tell Rivera.
For Yankee fans, it was a heart-fluttering moment!
