NEW YORK The Yankees held a ceremony before the first game to recognize the great Mariano Rivera for setting the all-time saves record earlier this month.

Terry Francona and bench coach DeMarlo Hale led the applause from the Red Sox dugout with David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia among the players joining in. Rivera tipped his cap to the Red Sox when the ceremony was over.

The Yankees commissioned a Waterford Crystal fireman's helmet for Rivera and his teammates presented him with a near life-size lithograph showing his baseball cards.
