The Red Sox, as expected, will pay tribute to Yankees closer Mariano Rivera in a pregame ceremony at Fenway Park on Sunday. It will be the final regular-season game at Fenway for the 43-year-old Rivera, who announced he would retire after the season.
Rivera has appeared in 55 regular-season games at Fenway Park, the most for an opposing reliever in the park’s 102 seasons.
Fans coming to Sunday’s game, scheduled to start at 8:05 p.m., are invited to be seated by approximately 7:30 p.m. A limited number of tickets are still available for the game.
In July, Rivera met with a group of long-time Red Sox employees, some Jimmy Fund patients and two victims of the Marathon bombings for a private question-and-answer session. He has hosted such events at all parks this season as his way of paying tribute to fans around the game.
