Yankees to dedicate plaque to Mariano Rivera on Aug 14

The Yankees will dedicate a plaque for retired relief pitcher Mariano Rivera in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium on Aug. 14 before a game against Tampa Bay.

Rivera, who retired after the 2013 season, helped New York win five World Series. He is the major league career saves leader in the regular season (652) and postseason (42).

New York, which made the announcement Thursday, retired Rivera's No. 42 in 2013. Major League Baseball retired the number throughout the league in 1997 in honor of Jackie Robinson, but players wearing it at the time could continue to use it. Rivera was the last to wear the number.
