BOSTON (CBS) – This weekend will be Mariano Rivera’s last trip to Fenway Park, and the Boston Red Sox will pay tribute to the future Hall of Famer.

The Red Sox will honor Rivera in a pre-game ceremony on Sunday, September 15, before the 43 year-old’s last regular season game at Fenway. Rivera’s 55 appearances at Fenway is more than any other visiting reliever in the 102-year history of the ballpark.

Rivera, who is Major League Baseball’s all-time saves leader with 651 saves, announced that he would retire at season’s end after a 19-year career. He owns 36 career saves at Fenway with a 2-4 record.

The ceremony is set to begin around 7:30 p.m., with the Red Sox and Yankees closing out their final game of the 2013 season against each other at 8:05 p.m..
