Mariano Rivera directed a few of his opening comments to Edgar Martinez: "Edgar has to take me to dinner one of these days (this weekend in New York), because of me, his average was better." Edgar said it was so tough to hit Mariano that "it doesn't feel like you're getting a hit (even when you do)."

Rivera, Martinez, Halladay, Mussina make HOF

Mariano Rivera, Edgar Martinez, Roy Halladay and Mike Mussina were voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Tuesday. Rivera became the first player ever voted unanimously into the Hall.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The baseball writers have elected a stellar class of 2019 to the Hall of Fame: the greatest closer of all time, the greatest DH of all time, the best pitcher of the 2000s and the most underrated starter of the past 25 years. Welcome to Cooperstown, Mariano Rivera, Edgar Martinez, Roy Halladay and Mike Mussina. And Rivera goes in with an exclamation point: the first unanimous selection by the BBWAA.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Edgar Martínez on fellow HOFer Mariano Rivera: "Mo is one of the greatest pitchers of all time, and he is the greatest closer of all time. It was always a challenge to face him, but I enjoyed the competition, and I like to think he did, too. It is very special for me to be able to share this day and this honor with him. Especially since, not only was he a great pitcher, but he did terrific work in his communities." (Via Yankees PR)
