Mariano Rivera Gets Rocking Chair Made from Broken Baseball Bats

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - JULY 2: Mariano Rivera #42 of the New York Yankees is presented with a rocking chair made out of broken bats by manager Ron Gardenhire #35, Justin Morneau #33 and Glen Perkins #15 of the Minnesota Twins before the game on July 2, 2013 at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Yankees' Mariano Rivera got a unique rocking chair made from baseball bats for his retirement gift from the twins. The Twins also gave Rivera a $10,000 donation for his foundation.

Among the bats were those belonging to Torii Hunter, Denard Span, Chuck Knoblauch, Kirby Puckett, Michael Cuddyer, Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau and Josh Willingham.

The chair, which was manager Ron Gardenhire’s idea, was inscribed with two Twins logos and the words “Chair of Broken Dreams.” How perfect?!! We love this idea for a fun, but memorable and meaningful retirement gift.
