It was a special night at Yankee Stadium as Mariano Rivera, the best closer in the history of baseball, pitched his last home game for the New York Yankees. These are three perspectives from that emotional moment: from the YES network, WCBS radio in New York and Sun Sports in Florida.
This was an incredibly emotional moment, even for a non-Yankee fan.
But here’s a note to TV broadcasters and sportswriters everywhere: can we for once bury the cliched “there wasn’t a dry eye in the house” line?
It’s tired, unoriginal and lazy.
