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.

The greatest relief pitcher of all time shares his extraordinary story of survival, love, and baseball.­Mariano Rivera, the man who intimidated thousands of batters merely by opening a bullpen door, began his incredible journey as the son of a poor Panamanian fisherman. When first scouted by the Yankees, he didn't even own his own glove. He thought he might make a good mechanic. When discovered, he had never flown in an airplane, had never heard of Babe Ruth, spoke no English, and couldn't imagine Tampa, the city where he was headed to begin a career that would become one of baseball's most iconic. What he did know: that he loved his family and his then girlfriend, Clara, that he could trust in the Lord to guide him, and that he could throw a baseball exactly where he wanted to, every time.­With astonishing candor, Rivera tells the story of the championships, the bosses (including The Boss), the rivalries, and the struggles of being a Latino baseball player in the United States and . . .

Baseball is the only game where the defense has the ball.­So begins an inside look at baseball's most scrutinized group of players—relief pitchers—and life in the most intriguing bullpen of all, that of the New York Yankees.­Second-­guessed and overstressed, the manager finds his use of the bullpen the most debated topic after any game, but the reliever is the guy in the spotlight, game on the line, alone on a raised mound of clay.­Bestselling sportswriter Charley Rosen takes the reader on the wild journey that is the evolution of relief pitching over the years and examines the eccentric characters who have taken on the pressure of closing out games—or not. Bullpen Diaries is full of interviews with key players, coaches, and scouts from around the league; replete with the drama of blown plays and walk-­off grand slams; and laced with funny anecdotes about Yankee greats throughout the years.­To underscore the drama and difficulty of being a reliever, Rosen uses key games in the 2010 . . .

Author:

The all-­time career leader is saves, with 633, Mariano Rivera is one of the greatest professional athletes in history. Since taking over the closer's role for the New York Yankees in 1997, Rivera saved thirty or more games in every season but one. In addition, he has an astonishing MLB record 42 postseason saves, with 11 of them coming in the World Series. After 19 seasons in the Major Leagues, his preeminence among relief pitchers is assumed and his induction into Cooperstown assured.
And he accomplished it all, mostly, with one devastating pitch: his signature cut fastball. As third baseman Corey Koskie put it: “­You knew what pitch [Rivera's] going to throw, a cutter ... You start to swing at the pitch and the next thing you know, the ball explodes your bat. I tried multiple things hoping to figure out a way get the barrel [of the bat] on one of his pitches.... Nothing worked.­"
Far from a conventional biography, Facing Mariano Rivera offers perspectives and...

After 19 seasons in the major leagues, all with a single team—a feat few athletes in today’s modern sport can match—Mariano Rivera closes out his career with the New York Yankees at the conclusion of the 2013 season. New York’s much-­loved closer retires as baseball’s all-­time leader in saves, ERA, and appearances, and he holds the Yankees’ single-­season saves record as well. Few could have predicted when the Yankees brought Rivera up to the majors in 1995 that he would one day hold the record for most career games pitched with a single team. Rivera did much more than lead by example; he powered his team to five World Series championships: 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2009. Celebrate Mo’s amazing career with this full-­color pictorial keepsake packed with unique images and exemplary writing from New York’s award-­winning newspaper, the New York Post .

THE RELIEF FISHER is the incredible story of how a skinny, smelly fisherman from Puerto Stinko, Panama became the greatest closer in baseball history!

In Mariano's own words, you'll hear about growing up in Panama, where Mariano learned to play baseball using a fish for a glove, and a fish for a bat, and a fish for the ball. You'll be inside the Rivera family's shack as Mariano signs his first contract with the Yankees for 250 sea bass. And you'll swim in a stormy ocean next to Mariano as he's saved from drowning by a talking dolphin.

In THE RELIEF FISHER, Mariano takes you inside the dugout and into the clubhouse for a never-­before-­revealed insider's perspective on the great Yankee teams of the last two decades.

You'll watch as Paul O'Neill destroys a water cooler because he only hit a double rather than a home run. You'll learn about the Yankees' secret . . .
