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, and the struggles of being a Latino baseball player in the United States and of maintaining Christian values in professional athletics. The twelve-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.
