Rivera Pitches A Perfect Eighth Inning In Final All-Star Game

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – American League manager Jim Leyland kept his promise. He brought in New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera in the eighth inning against the National League at Citi Field.

As Rivera finished warming up in bullpen, Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” began to play over the PA system at Citi Field.

Then the gates open and No. 42 began to run across the outfield and took the mound as both dugouts stood and gave him a standing ovation for several minutes.
