Mariano Rivera bobbleheads late to Yankee Stadium

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

People who went to Yankee Stadium for Mariano Rivera bobblehead doll night were greeted with vouchers because the collectables didn't show up on-time.

Thousands had showed up early to make sure they were among the first 18,000 fans who were promised the figurine.

The New York Yankees were forced to hand out vouchers for the giveaway honoring the career saves leader at Tuesday night's game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

The team blamed a transportation issue for the snafu.

Grumpy Yankee fans were finally able to start picking them up in the third inning when the shipment finally showed up.

Rivera is retiring at the end of the season.

Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.
