Rivera is the all-time saves leader with 608 plus 42 saves in the post-season. In all, he has five World Series rings and a 12 time AL All-Star. The 43-year old Panamanian right-hander missed most of 2012 after tearing his ACL in his knee during batting practice in Kansas City. Rivera had initially planned to retire after last season but did not want to go out in that fashion and has determinedly made his way back for one last campaign.
Mo has been a great ambassador for baseball and will be a first ballot Hall of Famer in 2019. He even got a standing ovation from Red Sox fans (albeit a somewhat sarcastic one) on Opening Day 2005. I have a feeling that Red Sox Nation will give Rivera a heartfelt standing ovation as a measure of respect before the end of the 2013 season.
