Mariano Rivera caught doctoring the ball ALCS game 3, 10th inning

After his last warmup pitch, Mariano Rivera walks towards the back of the mound, looks at 2nd base area, then 3rd base area, and then down at the ball and spits directly onto the ball as Fox quickly cuts to a shot of Mike Scioscia.  About 15 seconds later he delivers his first pitch to Aybar, for a called strike on the corner.
