New Era to release Mariano Rivera retirement hat
On Friday, Darren Rovell revealed a photo on his WhoSay account of a New Era hat that will be released to commemorate Mariano Rivera's illustrious career.
The release of this hat will follow a trend of this season, remembering Rivera. Often when the Yankees visited an opponent's stadium for the final time this year, the opposing team has presented the all-time saves leader with a parting gift. Gifts received by Rivera have ranged from a commemorative surfboard with his famous No. 42 on it from the Athletics, to framed photos of him pitching in Tiger Stadium and Comerica Park from Tigers manager Jim Leyland.
Having a hat released in your honor is certainly a nice way to "cap" off a storied career. The hat will be available for retail next week. Comment below if you will be adding this hat to your collection.
