MLB All-Star Game 2013

Exit Sandman

Mariano Takes the Mound in Final All Star Game

This past Tuesday, Mariano Rivera stopped at Mets-Willets point on the 7 Train for the very last time.  Well, he didn’t necessarily take the subway, but you get the point- the Greatest Closer of All Time made his final appearance in Queens, on the biggest in season stage possible: the All Star Game.  The song was there. The cheers were there.  And of course, the chills and the tears were there.  It was certainly a moment baseball fans who tuned into the game and those who were in attendance will remember forever.
