The Stars Came Out To See Mariano Rivera's Last Game At Dodger Stadium

That combination led to a all-star cast of fans that showed up for what was one of baseball’s most anticipated regular season matchups in recent years.

Here are some of the bigger stars starting with Cristiano Ronaldo, who threw out the first pitch…
