Thanks for all the great memories and MLB best 652 saves, thanks for Jackie Robinson paving the way for you to succeed in the pinstripes, thanks for being the last player in MLB to wear the number 42….thanks for choosing the best entrance song for a closer EVER! Thank you Mariano Rivera for being amazing. We’re going to miss you.
