Mariano Rivera made his first spring training appearance this afternoon, a typically impressive 1-2-3 inning that began and ended with massive ovations from the crowd.

The same feeling, the same situation,” Rivera said. “Just trying to get people out and go home.”

It was mentioned that some of those cheers might have been because the crowd expects Rivera to retire at the end of the season, making this Rivera’s last first spring outing. Rivera laughed and walked away, refusing to dive into the retirement conversation.

“Guys,” he said, smiling and shaking his head. “I’ve got to go.”
