Mariano Rivera gets nation’s highest civilian honor |  NJ.com

WASHINGTON — As he had done so many times as the closer for the New York Yankees, Mariano Rivera entered to the music of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.”

This time, though, he was in a suit, not a baseball uniform, and he was accompanied by the president of the United States, Donald Trump, who said Rivera “put the batter to sleep.”

And instead of notching another save, Rivera walked away with the nation’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which Trump put around his neck during a ceremony at the White House.

This is big news pertaining to a big baseball name. Let’s not turn the comment section into a garbage fire.
