Sports

Enter Sandman once again to another exclusive section of the history books.

Former Yankees closer Mariano Rivera was unanimously selected to the baseball hall of fame.

Rivera became the first player in Major League Baseball history to receive 100% of the Hall of Fame vote.

The Yankee legend was a 13-time All-Star, a 5-time World Series Champion and has an MLB record 652 saves.

Joining Mo in Cooperstown for the Class of 2019 is his former Yankee teammate pitcher Mike Mussina.

Also in the class is former Mariners designated hitter Edgar Martinez who was in his last year on the ballot, and the late Blue Jays great Roy Halladay who died in a plane crash in 2017.
