History is Made

We interrupt our usual programming to observe that today a Yankee made history.

Mariano Rivera of the New York Yankees sets a MLB regular season record for saves as he pitches a perfect ninth inning, helping the New York Yankees defeat the Minnesota Twins, 6-4.  Rivera’s 602nd save puts him ahead of Trevor Hoffman; he also has the MLB postseason record of 42 saves, which happens to be his uniform number.  He is the last active MLB player who will wear that number, which was retired in honor of Jackie Robinson.
