Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
‘The Closer’ is recently released autobiography of Yankees legendary reliever Mariano Rivera in which he shares with fans a story of his life and greatest love – baseball.

Rivera, born 1969, besides being one of the players that marked baseball history was also special due to his origins – born in Panama, in a family of humble fisherman he was perfect symbol of American dream come true.

The beginning of his career resembles some Hollywood movie, Rivera’s thinking about working as a mechanic until been found out by Yankees scout. Back then he didn’t know to speak English, he didn’t have his own glove and Babe Ruth was name that didn’t mean anything to him.

His baseball career started in Tampa and will end him becoming thirteen-time All-Star, a Yankees icon for time to come.

In his book, that in my opinion is a bit too short with its 300 pages, besides all the expected things that Yankees fans are certainly eager to read, a reader can find numerous behind-the-scenes stories about the team managers and owners, about his teammates, rivalry with other players and teams, and probably most important, about his struggling to be different sportsman who managed to preserve and cherish his values and beliefs, not forgetting about his origins.

Rivera was finding strength in Clara, who he knew practically his whole life, and the other beloved ones which helped him going through even the saddest times of his career; in ‘The Closer’ Rivera speaks about his desire to win, his composure that became his trademark along with his cut fastball.

Therefore, if you like baseball and especially if you’re fan of Yankees Rivera’s book is absolute must-read which tells a story about one special man and his dream, that speaks about a man who despite not being too old already became a legend.

Powerful and Suprising 7. Mai 2014
Von Downs MacRury - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
What struck me was the utter improbability of Mariano's journey. His pre-Internet village as if from another century. Didn't speak English, never been on a plane, never heard of Babe Ruth. He came from nothing and ended up on the mountaintop. And the great thing is that after reading this book you know he's just what he seems, a special man. A generous spirit. Kind. But more too, perceptive and wise. He's quiet, but it surprised me how tough he is. Read the Cano stuff. Mariano Rivera, the ultimate modern Yankee. What a story. I received it as a gift. Perfect for this Yankee fan.

No Game Greater than Baseball 8. Mai 2014
Von BookVodney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book covers a man's journey from hardship, toil and heartbreak on a small fishing boat in Panama to rising as a star pitcher with an infamous team in the Major Leagues. It reminds me why I love the game so much. A game where anyone - no matter their back ground in life can demonstrate greatest . It is another story of America and it's favorite game: A tale of a kind hearted, religious, and humble man's rise to greatest.

Rivera was signed by the Yankees at age 20 when he was discovered playing on local teams in Panama. He developed and rose to invent a pitch known as the "cutter" - almost impossible to hit. His talent carried him to a long and successful career. Some may believe this book to be "sugar coated" (not typical of the scandalous books of today), but I found it to be refreshing, and it has sparked my interest in baseball this season. A story of a simple man's opportunity to rise to unbelievable heights - a story only found in America.

Personal, Moving Story of the Pitcher and His Faith 14. Mai 2014
Von Phil Wade - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
He has been called the greatest relief pitcher in the history of baseball, and he holds the current record for most games saved (652). This book is his story as he would tell it. There are no skeletons in the closet and no bridges burned between teammates. Rivera is an honest, upbeat man who played his best (which was better than most).

There's a story about finding his place on the mound. He says one of the great ironies about sports is that trying too hard to succeed is about the surest way to bring on failure.

"When John Wetteland signed with the Rangers, the Yankees put me in as their closer. I didn’t let on at the time, but I really wanted to show everybody that I could do it. The ’97 season didn’t start well, and Mr. T. (Joe Torre) and the pitching coach, Mel Stottlemyre, called me in.

"I said, 'I’m sorry I’ve blown so many games.'

"They said, 'Mo, do you know what you need to do? You need to be Mariano Rivera. That’s all. Nothing more, nothing less. It looks to us like you’re trying to be perfect.'

"I walked out of that office feeling 10,000 tons lighter. They wanted me to be myself. That’s when I devised a little trick. I wasn’t going to think about the inning or anything else. When I’m on the mound, I have the ball, the hitter has a bat, and my only job is to get him out one pitch at a time. The payoff was immediate. I stopped trying to be Wetteland and demanding perfection, and I run off twelve straight saves."

That's the kind of guy Rivera is. If you're a fan of his or a fan of baseball, there are many deep inside details here to mull over. I think you'll enjoy this book.

Deep and Astonishing 8. Mai 2014
Von Steffen Roy Leguisamo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I thought that I know a lot about Mariano, but at this time his soul and experience is exposed for good. Very helpful. Well written I suppose he receive a lot of help, but definitely is Mariano.

God always has been with him. Amazing the history of the day he pitch for the first time since he was 14. Don't want to be a spoiler, highly recommended and I am just in chapter 3.
