THE TYPE THAT CLAIM TO BE BIODEGRADABLE. THANK YOU. MARIANO RIVIERA CAN ADD ANOTHER TROPHY TO HIS CASE TODAY THE FIVE TIME WORLD SERIES CHAMP AND BASEBALL HALL OF FAMER RECEIVED THE PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM. IT’S BEEN A GOOD YEAR FOR RIVIERA AFTER BEING FIRST BASEBALL PLAYER UNANIMOUSLY VOTED INTO THE HALL OF FAME TODAY HE WAS BESTOWED THE NATION’S HIGHEST CIVILIAN HONOR, PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM THERE IS AN ARGUMENT, IS HE THE GREATEST PITCHER OR THE GREATEST RELIEF Reporter: FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP, IT WAS A MOMENT HE RELISHED. CLEARLY A BASEBALL FAN THE PRESIDENT WAS IMPRESSED BY THE STATS IN 1998, 1999, 2,000 WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONSHIPS, MARIANO CLOSED THREE CONSECUTIVE WORLD SERIES VICTORIES AND DELIVERED 14 STRIKE OUTS AND SEVEN SAVES Reporter: HE WAS RECOGNIZED FOR COMMUNITY SERVICE AND HIS FOUNDATION I TRY TO BE THE BEST AND DO THE BEST FOR AMERICA Reporter: RIVIERA RECOUNTED HIS STRUGGLE TO LEARN ENGLISH FROM TEAMMATES.
