Mariana Rivera Career Over? Yankees’ Star Reliever Suffers Torn ACL

New York Yankee fans are in shock over the news that pitcher Mariano Rivera has torn his ACL and meniscus, ending his season and, quite possibly, his career.

Tracking a fly ball during pre-game batting practice in Kansas City, Rivera apparently caught his cleat where the outfield grass meets the warning track, causing his knee to buckle.

The 42-year old Rivera, who has 5 World Series rings and a record 608 saves, is considered baseball’s all-time greatest closer.  

An emotional Rivera told reporters he’ll decide after the season ends and rehab is well under way whether to hang up his 18-year career in the majors.
