Meet the extraordinary Mariano Rivera, Jr. A very well-known baseball pitcher playing in the Major League Baseball, most famous for becoming a thirteen-time All-Star and five-time World Series champion. A legend who has proven his mettle over and over again. "Everything starts with God in my career and it will finish with God". Mariano Rivera Jr. http://www.thextraordinary.org/mariano-rivera
Favorite moment of the night....American League pitcher Mariano Rivera of the New York Yankees gestures after coming into the game during the eighth inning during the 2013 All Star Game at Citi Field. This is Riveras last all star game as he is reitiring at the end of the season. 7-16-13
With the all-time saves record (652 as of Wednesday) in no jeopardy of being shattered in this lifetime, and with five World Series rings to go along with nearly 1,300 innings pitched and numerous accolades and awards, Rivera will leave the game as dominant and consistent as he was when he joined John Wetteland for a lights-out combination in 1996, and when Rivera became the full-time Yankee closer a year later.
