Yankees ace reliever Mariano Rivera acknowledges the ovation from the fans at the All-Star Game, held at Citi Field, home of the Mets. Rivera, the only active player still wearing 42, is retiring at the end of the season. The number 42, worn by Jackie Robinson, is retired around major league baseball. After this season, no one in American professional baseball will wear 42.
