Rivera will serve alongside Bill Belchick and others
Former New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera has a new role -- this one with the government.
According to a source with direct knowledge, alongside Belichick, Trump will also appoint golfer Natalie Gulbis, three-time Olympic beach volleyball gold medalist Misty May-Treanor, retired Major League Baseball pitcher Mariano Rivera, retired NFL running back Herschel Walker, and Dr. Mehmet Oz.
Rivera is expected to be officially introduced in the coming months, with a sports field day happening on the South Lawn of the White House.
Rivera, 48, finished his 19-year big-league career with a record 652 saves.
