Yankees closer Mariano Rivera will have made just shy of $170 million over his 19-year career when he hangs his spikes after this season. As the season hits the turning point, he will be visiting parks for the last time in his career. On Tuesday, the Twins presented Rivera with an incredibly thoughtful parting gift as he will not visit Target Field again.
Rivera’s $170 million was made breaking bats with his nasty cut fastball. The Mo trademark worked like a saw darting toward and away righties and lefties.
The Twinkies gave some of the broken bats back to Rivera in the form of a rocking chair.
