→ Peter Gammons Recaps Boston Salute to Rivera

Anyone who grew up in New England and loves the game would have preferred to see Rivera, Jeter and Pettitte play in the same game one last time, but before the Yankees took to the Fenway field for what likely will be the last time in 2013, the fans could savor the realization that we have been blessed to have watched Rivera grace that field since 1995 and to have known one of the finest human beings we’ll ever meet in our lifetimes.

A really great article from Gammons. I encourage any Red Sox fan to read the whole thing.1

  1. And yes, I am one of those people who wanted to see the Red Sox beat Jeter and Rivera one last time at Fenway.
