Remember a couple of nights ago I made a blog post about Mariano Rivera wanting the Yankees to play exhibition baseball in his hometown of Panama? Well according to a source, it looks like it’s going to happen next season.
According to a tweet from Mark Feinsand of the Daily News, the Yankees are going to play in Panama City on March 15 & March 16 vs. the Miami Marlins. The official announcement isn’t expected for another 1-2 weeks but as we wait, can we just take time to marvel at how much power Mariano Rivera has in the baseball world? I guess that’s what happens when you’re the best/most respected closer in baseball history.
