Video: Watch Johnny Bench joyfully ring NYSE closing bell

Johnny Bench did the honors of ringing the New York Stock Exchange Closing Bell on Thursday.

The Cincinnati Reds legend and Hall of Fame catcher was accompanied by executives and guests of Rawlings Sporting Goods, a subsidiary of Jarden Corporation, who hosted a ceremony honoring the class of 2013 Rawlings Gold Glove Award recipients Thursday evening.

One of the members of that aforementioned class is Brandon Phillips. The Georgia native just won his fourth career Gold Glove Award last week.

Bench was assisted in the bell ringing duties by Jarden Corporation CEO Jim Lillie. As you can see, it looks like a good time was had by all.
