It happened while Rivera was talking to reporters in the dugout about an emotional meeting with local fans earlier in the day. Chamberlain was standing on the field and yelling over the dugout to members of his family, who had shown up for the game.
Analysis: At one point, Rivera told Chamberlain to lower his voice. Once Rivera's interview was done, Chamberlain told Rivera in front of reporters: "Don't ever shush me."
