MARIANO RIVERA

The man who did so much with one pitch had it working in his 22 Metrodome appearances. Rivera picked up a save for the Yankees in 14 of those games, posting a 1.30 ERA and striking out 27 batters in 27⅔ innings pitched. He served up only one home run at the Dome, a three-run shot to right by Delmon Young on an 0-2 pitch in 2008. Rivera hadn’t pitched in 13 days.

 

REGGIE JACKSON

Mr. October was Mr. April at the Dome in 1983. In town with the Angels for a three-game series, Jackson hit one home run in each game. Historically, none was better than the middle game of the set when Jackson, Doug DeCinces and Bob Boone all went yard in the same game. Three years later Jackson hit two more home runs at the Dome off — who else? — Bert Blyleven.

 

ROGER CLEMENS

Roger Clemens’ second career start was in the Metrodome. The wiry Rocket gave up four runs in seven innings on May 20, 1984, including the first of 363 career home runs allowed: a solo round-tripper to Tom Brunansky in the bottom of the sixth. Clemens still picked up victory No. 1 that Sunday afternoon. The rest is history.

 

PETE ROSE

Though he never appeared in an official game here, MLB’s hit king left his mark on the Dome. Rose picked up the first-ever hit under the Teflon roof in an exhibition on April 3, 1982. He also appeared for the National League in the 1985 All-Star Game, as a pinch hitter for Fernando Valenzuela. He grounded out to second on the fourth pitch he saw.
