'Enter Sandman' Plays As Mariano Rivera Gets Presidential Medal Of Freedom

President Donald Trump represented Mariano Rivera with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

According to Business Inside, the two walked into the room to the tune of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.” The song selection was a nod to Rivera’s entrance music while he played for the New York Yankees.

Trump praised Rivera, saying he was “maybe the greatest pitcher of all time.” The president said “Enter Sandman” was Rivera’s choice because “he put the batter to sleep.”
