After Mariano Rivera retired all four batters he faced on Sept. 27, 2013, manager Joe Girardi delegated his pitching change to a pair of tenured veterans, Andy Pettitte and Derek Jeter, who walked out to retrieve Rivera for retirement. As they reached the mound, Rivera dissolved into tears on Pettitte’s shoulder, where he stayed buried for half a minute, longtime teammates who quite literally grew up together through the ranks of the Yankees organization. Rivera then spent time on Jeter’s shoulder before the Captain told him, “Time to go.” (Bill Kostroun, Kathy Willens/AP)
