Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) wished New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera a "speedy recovery" after the relief pitcher tore a knee ligament on Thursday.
Sad to see Mariano Rivera, one of the all time greats, tear his ACL. Wishing speedy recovery to this #Yankee legend— Chuck Schumer (@ChuckSchumer) May 4, 2012
Rivera, the ace closer for the Yankees, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee Thursday night. The injury is likely to bench Rivera, 42, for the rest of the year and possibly mean the end of his baseball career.
