Books Info:

Mariano Rivera: Saving Grace free pdf 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."
