NEW YORK -- American League All-Star manager Jim Leyland guaranteed Monday that Mariano Rivera would pitch in Tuesday's All-Star Game.
And Rivera will hear his customary Yankee Stadium entrance music as well.
According to FoxSports.com, Metallica's "Enter Sandman" will be played over the loudspeakers when Rivera jogs in from the bullpen Tuesday night, despite the fact that Rivera will be pitching in the home of the Yankees' crosstown rivals.
This is Rivera's 13th and final All-Star Game, with the future Hall of Famer planning to retire at the end of the season. That's the second-most All-Star appearances for a pitcher, behind only Warren Spahn (17).
Rivera has actually pitched in the All-Star Game eight times, with a perfect 0.00 ERA and four saves, allowing just one unearned run in eight innings.
