I keep hearing how great Mr Clemente was. I never had the privilege of seeing him play. He was already gone two and half years before i was born.

However, i like many others did see you Mr Rivera. Each of you had different talents on the field. But, you probably best captured his magic and electricity on the field as a Latino player. Thanks for your many great years of relief pitching. Your record of saves will never be broken. The best closer i have ever seen.

Baseball like several other sports are an American pastime and most of us have good memories watching the games where our own hopes and dreams are sometimes metaphorically tied into the teams we root for.

Thank you for being a part of that Mr Rivera.

You were a great sportsmen and most importantly a class act.

Now it's on to the Latino sports hall of fame.

Petite shouldn't do this to Rivera. Petite already retired.

But, what the heck was Rivera going to say?. He can't tell him no. He had no choice but to cede to his wishes.

It will be a good send off tomorrow.

Rivera didn't cheat. Petite did.

Hank Aaron, Mays, Mantle, Clemente...All the legends.

They just played the game.

Has to be Dave. Nobody else this bitter.

It is quite sad "someone" is like that

I haven't paid attention to baseball since the strike. I used to watch every game I could tune in with the rabbit ears and I knew every players name and bought baseball cards every day with my lunch money and cut lawns to buy more and went to a few games. After the strike I just saw the game as a profit machine for everyone involved and never looked back, I go watch the kids play in two of the local parks and I love to see the kids playing from the heart, no other reason but the love of the game

Nice post, Al. From the heart.

True. It's plain ol greed that has destroyed the sport.

We should have a zero no tolerance for steroids. A player gets caught. They're banned. Plain and simple.... Management is just as guilty. They are hypocrites. They knew.

These guys laugh at the suspensions.

The kids make for an exciting game.Last time I watched I don't think there was a uniform on either bench that wasn't dirty red from sliding and diving. The coachs seem to play everyone and the fans cheer for both teams when a play is just well done. I love the local excitement for it also, the playoffs and finals winners have a team parade here in town going through all the neighborhoods honking and yelling and waving signs and it is great.Money just tears the game apart

The number 42 has been officially retired from the Yankees. That is Mo's number. Only Mo from now on.

Mo's ceremony.

The number 42 is retired to go down in history. He along with the late great Jackie Robinson.
