Synopsis

The Closer My Story by Mariano Rivera, Wayne Coffey

Ruth, Mantle, Gehrig, DiMaggio...Rivera. A top-five Yankee of all time, Mariano Rivera is the man who has intimidated thousands of batters by merely opening a bullpen door. Now, in an edition for young readers, he will tell his story for the first time: from a childhood in Panama, to the championships, the rivalries, and 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.

Reviews

A must for young baseball fans.
