As a kid, getting my number retired by the Yankees wasn’t something I thought about even in my wildest dreams. I can’t even put into words how much it means. To have my family and all the guys here just made it even more special.
Thank you to New York and the Yankees organization for this incredible honor.

With two out in the ninth inning, Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte emerge from the dugout to pull legendary closer Mariano Rivera, giving the sold-out crowd at Yankee Stadium one last chance to cheer their beloved reliever. The unexpected visit to the mound triggers an emotional encounter between the remaining Core Four teammates that renders Mo speechless as he weeps from the adulation of his friends and fans.
