One of the best baseball players ever has retired today: 42-year-old Mariano Rivera threw his last pitch and abandoned the Yankee Stadium—his home for 18 years—for the last time, crying his eyes out of unabashed emotion.
After retiring this year, Mariano Rivera will become a baseball legend. Which is why 18,000 fans are now at the New York Yankees' stadium eager to get their free Rivera bobblehead. But tragedy! There are no bobble heads in sight. Come on New York, it's time to start rioting.
