New HoF inductee Mariano Rivera, in our Cooperstown interview Fri., reflected on being the last full-time No. 42 in MLB: "It moved me to always do my best, so I can make Mr. Jackie Robinson proud of me.

Robinson's widow Rachel, who turned 97 Fri., said in a statement this week that Rivera "carried Jack's legacy with dignity, distinction and courage" and "becoming the first unanimous inductee in the Hall of Fame's history is a wonderfully fitting tribute to Mariano, a man of stellar character who has given so much to the game, and who continues to give so generously to our broader community. I am thrilled for him."
