The 2008 All Star game at Yankee Stadium was tied 3-3 in the 9th. Terry Francona went to the mound and signaled for Mariano Rivera. The Fox Sports camera went to the bullpen door. Before it opened, they went to commercial.




Rivera's 2008 entrance was kindly posted to You Tube otherwise the moment would've been lost forever. 2008 All Star Game at Yankee Stadium, July 16, 2008. The Fox Sports camera went to the bullpen door. Before it opened, they went to commercial. Terry Francona was waiting on the mound to hand the ball to Rivera. You Tube page poster mentions this:

---------------------------------

Rivera got 5 outs. He entered in the 9th with score tied 3-3, 1 out, 1 on. He came back in the 10th, score still tied 3-3, got 3 outs, score at the end of the 10th still tied 3-3. The game went 15 innings, final 5-4 AL. Rivera didn't figure in the decision but that was a minor point in the game.

P.S. I watched this game in 2008 and noticed they didn't show Rivera coming in from the bullpen in his own stadium for a 3-3 tie game. I mentioned it in a post on this blog but the post seems to have disappeared.
