Mariano Rivera a guest instructor at Yankee Spring Training


Above, 3/24/16, "Mariano Rivera observes bullpen sessions," Brendan Kuty, Star Ledger

3/24/16, "Mo is here, btw"...Brendan Kuty, Srat Ledger, Tampa, Fla.

3/25/16, "A retired Mariano Rivera still likes shagging baseballs," CBS Sports, R.J. Anderson

"Mariano Rivera's career-long fondness for shagging balls during batting practice was no secret -- after all, that's how he tore his ACL in 2013. But Rivera didn't let the injury affect his routine back then, and even now-as a 46-year-old guest instructor two whole seasons into retirement-he can't help but to indulge himself by chasing after BP flyballs.

Here's the video evidence, courtesy of Brendan Kuty of the Star-Ledger:

Laugh at Rivera's inability to complete the transaction if you'd like, but keep in mind that he could still strike you out. Besides, it's nice knowing that love -- or at least the special kind of love an all-time great shares with batting practice baseballs -- is eternal.

He hasn't aged a day. (USATSI)"

Delta Airlines increases Yankee Stadium presence, Mariano Rivera among Stadium guests at March 3 announcement

3/6/16, "Delta features at the Yankee Stadium,", Ozgur Tore

"Delta changed the Yankee Stadium skyline this week with the official unveiling of its new signage, featuring the Delta widget and 14-foot-tall letters.

Delta’s prominent signage atop the scoreboard in right-center field is the first time a New York Yankees partner has been granted such significant exposure and is part of Delta’s recently announced eight-year extension of its sponsorship agreement with the team.

Customers, media, and a very special guest-former Yankee closer Mariano Rivera-were in attendance at the March 3 event.

Delta has been the team’s official carrier since 2008 and has flown the team nearly 300,000 miles during that time."
