Mariano Rivera is the last player in Major League baseball wearing 42. "The number was made famous by Jackie Robinson, and it's an honor to also wear it," Rivera always says.

Someday, 42 will be retired at Yankee Stadium. On a day for Rivera, I'm sure he will make a dedication to Robinson. No one has a kinder heart or a greater understanding.

"I am just a simple worker," Rivera likes to say. "I'm nothing without my teammates."

And they are nothing without you, 42.
