With Yankees hurler Mariano Rivera in his final Major League season, each of New York’s opponents have planned tributes to the most dominant closer of all time. 

In deference to Rivera’s cutter — a type of fastball that runs in on the hands of hitters, causing them to hit the ball with the slim part of their bats and, most of the time, breaking them — the Minnesota Twins presented #42 with a rocking chair made of… broken bats. 

Longtime Twins manager Ron Gardenhire pointed out that most of the bats used to construct the “Chair of Broken Dreams” were, indeed, broken by Rivera.

Apropos of everything.
