Over the course of his final season, Mariano Rivera's impressive haul of gifts included a couple of rocking chairs, a live performance from Metallica and a poem from the Red Sox's poet laureate, among many, many other things. Now he can add an avenue to his collection.

In a ceremony on Monday afternoon, the all-time saves leader uncovered the new street sign outside of Yankee Stadium. Previously named River Avenue, it took only the addition of an "A" to complete the transformation.

The Yankees love to honor their best, and let's face it -- it wouldn't take much to turn Jerome Avenue, on the west side of the stadium into "Jeter."
