Rivera played his entire MLB career in a Yankees’ uniform. A relief pitcher, Rivera boasts career statistics of 82 wins against 60 losses. He had an earned run average of just 2.21 and had 1,173 strikeouts. The right-hander from Panama had 652 saves during his career, No. 1 all time in the MLB. He was a 13-time All-Star.
Being among the honorees at Monument Park is no small feat. Only the most celebrated and lauded Yankees take their place in this historic museum.
