Yankees to play exhibition games in Panama to honor Mariano Rivera

This is both classy and, of course, plays into my fascination with International Baseball.

This is pretty cool.

Mariano Rivera has talked about wanting the Yankees to play an exhibition game in his hometown of Panama City, Panama and now it’s happening.

Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily Newsreports that the Yankees will play two exhibition games against the Marlins in Panama on March 15 and March 16.

Should be a great scene, with Rivera no doubt being part of the festivities. And maybe Yankees manager Joe Girardi can give him a last-minute “come out of retirement, please” sales pitch.
