as Rivera came in from the bullpen.

The familiar Enter Sandman, which might as well be a dirge for every hitter who's had to face Rivera at Yankee Stadium, played at the home of the New York Mets. It easily won the night over God Bless America in the seventh or a live performance of Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond just before Rivera's entrance.

Rivera got to the mound and tipped his cap as the crowd and both dugouts rose to applaud, other relievers came out onto the warning track to show their appreciation.

"Nothing is better than this," Rivera said. "I appreciate all of it. From the fans. From the peers."


Baseball will not be the same as he retires this year.
