Twins give Mariano Rivera a “Chair of Broken Dreams”
We have a new leader in the clubhouse for ‘Most Creative Mariano Rivera Farewell Gift.’ In a pre-game ceremony tonight, the Minnesota Twins gave Rivera a rocking chair made out of broken bats. According to Twins manager Ron Gardenhire, several of the bats were broken by Rivera himself over the years, including one of the Kirby Puckett models.
The Twins also made a $10,000 donation to the Mariano Rivera Foundation. The chair was Gardenhire’s idea, according to the Twins. (Photo credit: @Twins)
