Now, the New York Yankees Hall of Fame closer is scheduled to announce his final day in pinstripes on Saturday at a 10 a.m. press conference at George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, reports Joel Sherman of The New York Post.
Those close to the story are already aware that Rivera has been coy in the past about his retirement and there is always a chance he could change his mind.
"I will tell you guys when it is the right moment," he said on Feb. 13. "Don't worry, the time will come."
This sounds like that moment and a sad day in the Bronx.
