03/29: Yankees Split Exhibition Series in Panama, Honoring Mariano Rivera

Posted by: Patrick
On March 15 and 16, the Yankees played a pair of exhibition games against the Marlins, in Panama, in honor of Mariano Rivera. I apologize for the lack of coverage of this - I had been away and then fell ill.

In game 1, the Yankees lost 5-0. Worse than that, they were no-hit by four Marlins pitchers. Prior to the game, Mariano Rivera threw the first pitch, which symbolized "passing the torch," according to Rivera. The former Yankees closer hoped the games would help increase the popularity of baseball in his native country.

In game 2, the Yankees won 7-0 and they almost no-hit the Marlins, who collected just one hit.
