Teams have been honoring Rivera during his final season as he visits their stadiums for the last time during the regular season. He has been presented with checks for his charity as well as gifts. Rivera has also met with fans and team employees during his stops, sharing experiences and stories.

Last season, the Mets gave retired Braves third baseman Chipper Jones artwork as part of his farewell tour.
