ok first off i think its great what they are doing to honor him, but i was wondering something, i dont understand how MLB retired the #42 in honor of Jackie Robinson, but how come Mariano Rivera has been allowed to wear it?

Anyone who had the number #42 when they retired it in 97 was allowed to keep it until they retired. Mariano is the last one still playing when he retires no one else will wear it.
