The Bronx, NY (WDAY TV) - The scene was unforgettable Thursday night at Yankee Stadium as Mariano Rivera made his last appearance on the mound there.

He was taken out of the game in the ninth inning by his longtime teammates Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte, and received a near four-minute standing ovation from the Yankee fans.

Rivera is the all-time leader in saves and was overcome by the scene Thursday night.

Mariano Rivera- Yankees Closer: “Everything hit me from the first time I came here to today; all the good times and sad times. Everything hit me like a ton of bricks; just lost it for a little bit.”
