Yankees closer Mariano Rivera publicly condemned the vandalism of the Jackie Robinson statue in Coney Island.
The reliever told the Daily News that he hopes police find whoever scrawled racial slurs and swastikas on the base of the statue outside MCU Park last week.
The reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction has spiked to $50,000.
