Rangers Present Mariano Rivera With Texas-Sized Gifts – VIDEO
New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera continued his 2013 farewell tour by receiving a Texas-sized gift from the Texas Rangers on Thursday.
In his final game at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Rivera was presented with a 15-gallon hat, along with a pair of cowboys boots, by the Rangers.
In another nice gesture, the Rangers donated $5,000 to the Mariano Rivera Foundation, Rivera’s charity, as other teams on the farewell tour have done.
The 43-year old Rivera will be retiring at year’s end, after 19 seasons, and an MLB-record 640 career saves.
If I’m Rivera, I coming back next year and having another tour!
