Before their game Tuesday, the Minnesota Twins gave New York Yankees relief pitcher Mariano Rivera a retirement gift – a rocking chair made mostly of broken bats.
It was presented in a pre-game ceremony in Minnesota.
An inscription on the chair reads, “Chair of Broken Dreams.” Rivera is known for breaking the bats of several foes during a career that is sure to land him in the Hall of Fame.
"I was expecting someone to do something like that with broken bats, but that was, that was awesome," said Rivera. "That was great. That was wonderful. Made me laugh a lot.”
