They then presented him with the first in a series of gifts. First was a painting of him being introduced at Fenway.
Gift #2 was the placard that was used on the scoreboard for when Mariano pitched.
Gift #3 was a seat from Fenway. Of course it was seat 42.
A pitching rubber from the visitor’s bullpen was gift #4.
The final gift was a check from the Red Sox owners to Mariano’s charity.
All in all it was an incredible ceremony.
