About this item
The nineteen-year veteran pitcher for the New York Yankees describes his life, discussing the difficulties in being a Latino baseball player in the U.S., how he keeps his Christian values in professional sports, and his championships and rivalries.
The memoir from the greatest relief pitcher of all time.
While he is listed along with Ruth, Mantle, Gehrig, and DiMaggio as a top-five Yankee of all time, Rivera is also a man of God and family whose contributions to charity and community ensure a meaningful life long after his time as The Closer is over. He is the man who has intimidated thousands of batters by merely opening a bullpen door.
Now he will tell his story for the first time: the championships, the bosses (including The Boss), the rivalries, the struggles of being a Latino baseball player in the United States, and of maintaining Christian values in professional athletics. The 12-time All-Star will discuss what it's like to run up to that mound with the game--or the season--squarely on his shoulders.
