The end of the 2013 season for the New York Yankees was also the end of an amazing journey for Yankees legend and future Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera.

During Rivera's 19 years in pinstripes, he became baseball's all-time saves leader with 652 and posted an 82-60 record with a 2.21 ERA during the regular season. In 96 postseason appearances, he was even better, going 8-1 with an amazing 0.70 ERA and 42 saves while helping lead the Yankees to five World Series titles.

Rivera's statistical record list goes on forever, but even more importantly to Yankees fans, it's his character and class that he will always be remembered for. In this video, see how some of the Bronx faithful reflect on one of the most respected and successful baseball players to ever step on the diamond.
