The pomp and pageantry of the Mariano Rivera farewell tour stopped over at the 2013 All-Star Game just long enough to give stars from around baseball a chance to tip their caps to one of the great ones.
It was just one of many times Rivera represented the Yankees in the Midsummer Classic, and indeed, it was one of the better ones.
Join MLB Lead Writer Zachary Rymer and MLB Contributor Gabe Zaldivar as they go through the best moments from Rivera’s illustrious cameos during the All-Star Game.
We break down a great start in 1997 and a dramatic turn in 2008. While not getting the save or the win, Rivera gave a classic performance at Yankee Stadium in the ninth and 10th innings in what ended up being the longest All-Star Game in history.
Feel free to offer your thoughts and memories in the comments section below. When it comes to a man like Rivera, we know there will be a great deal that needs to be said.
