9780791099018: Mariano Rivera (Baseball Superstars)

From small fishing village to Yankee Stadium - this book presents the true-life story of Mariano Rivera. In 1990, the Yankees paid a signing bonus of $2,000 to acquire a young shortstop from an amateur baseball team in Panama. Mariano Rivera had never even considered a career in baseball until he became a Yankee. Now, he is considered the best post season closer - and perhaps the best closer - of all time, as well as one of the main reasons the team won four World Series titles between 1996 and 2000. In close games, Rivera's clutch 'saves' have secured both wins and the Yankees' continued appearances in the post season. Off the field, Rivera has been recognized for his philanthropic work in the United States and Panama alike."Mariano Rivera" recounts the story of the man who grew up playing baseball with a homemade cardboard glove in a small fishing village to become the Yankees' beloved 'Mo' through hard work and post season talent.
