The New York Yankees could face a hard-throwing Heisman Trophy winner in their first spring training game.
Mariano Rivera and his family walked into the pavilion behind the third-base stands at Steinbrenner Field followed by his New York Yankees' teammates.
With the entire Yankees' team looking on — including longtime teammates Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte — Rivera said he knew the time was right for his decision.

"Mo is as good as anybody that's ever done it," Gossage said. "The last thing I want to do is take anything away from this guy, he is great.

Gossage noted that the role of closer has gone from multiple innings to basically a one-inning job.
