Yankees Stadium Legacy: #100 Mariano Rivera

In Mariano Rivera's first full season as the New York Yankees closer in 1997 Mo saves 43 games for the AL East champions with a 1.88 ERA. Rivera transitioned from shutting down the 7th and the 8th innings in 1996 to shutting down the games in 1997 thus ending rallies for the other team in the 9th inning. In 2005 Mo saved 43 more games, the sixth time he had saved 40 or more games in a season, and took home his fourth American League Rolaids Relief Award.

In exactly 100 days the New York Yankees will start their quest for their 28th World Series Championship and The Greedy Pinstripes will countdown to Opening Day to keep you sane during the long, dark, and boring winter. Check back every day for a new edition of the Yankees Stadium Legacy.
