The Kaufmann Stadium warning track is now a “No Mo Zone”

Mariano Rivera tore the ACL in his right knee shagging fly balls at Kaufmann Stadium last year, forcing him onto the DL for the rest of the season and putting his future in doubt. Now back in action and as strong as ever — the right-hander has a 1.88 ERA and 13 saves in as many opportunities — he returns to the scene of the crime as the Yankees have begun a three-game set in Kansas City.

Paying homage to Rivera, Kaufmann Stadium playfully labeled the warning track a “No Mo Zone”.

    That’s cute, and I love that Mo is enjoying it so much. :)

    Look at him remembering the pain grabbing his knee.

    Classy dude. It’s been an honor to see him pitch. Just wish he could’ve done it for some other team.

      No other team is classy enough to deserve him.

    Best part is the chalk outline on the ground. :-)

    Listening to the KC announcers last night on MLB, and they said Mo took the doctor who accompanied him to the hospital out to dinner to thank him for going with him and encouraging him on the ride. Classy doesn’t even start to do him justice.
