    New York Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera, one of the best closers in the game whether you are a fan of the Bronx bombers or not, got a gold record for Metallica's "Enter Sandman."

    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame gifted the plaque to Mo due to the fact that since 1991, every time he has come out to the mound to save a game at Yankees Stadium, the song served as his entrance music. Rivera told the New York Daily News, "I've got a gold record, brother. Without even singing, I have a gold record."

    See the plaque on the NY Daily News site.
