This Day in Yankees History: The Yankees sign Mariano Rivera

Welcome to the relaunched This Day in Yankees History. Pitchers and catchers are officially reporting to spring training today! In addition, many of the Yankees position players have also already made their way to Tampa and are getting in some reps while waiting for their official report date. With just a few weeks of waiting until spring training games begin, these daily posts will highlight two or three key moments in Yankees history on a given date, as well as recognize players born on the day. Hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane with us!
