This is the last time Mariano Rivera will wear pinstripes, until some Old Timer’s Day in the near future when he’ll probably look exactly the same, and the fastball will still be cutting, and you’ll wonder if he couldn’t have done this for a few more years if he wanted to. But it’s over, and even if a season-long victory lap was secretly as much about saying “we want you to stay” as “we’re thankful we got to see you play,” the man’s done. As Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte approached the mound to remove Rivera from the game, cameras caught the first words exchanged. Jeter to Rivera: “Time to go.”

“It has been such an exciting, enjoyable, wonderful season — the big crowds in the ballpark, everybody is talking about the ballclub, and I really respect, admire and love the management — so everything just fell into place,” Scully said.
“I really still enjoy it immensely. My health is good, thank God. So why not? And my wife said, ‘Why not?’ as well.
“Just the thought of walking away from it to retirement — and looking out the window or something? It’s just too good. As a baseball man, and someone who has always loved the game, the situation and the conditions are perfect.”
