New York Yankees MARIANO RIVERA 1995 2013 !!|| PHILIPPIANS 4:13 I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST, WHO STRENGTHENS ME МИ BORN NOVEMBER 29TH,1969 PANAMA CITY - PANAMA 42 RAISED IN PUERTO CAIMITO, A PANAMANIAN FISHING VILLAGE 25 MILES WEST OF PANAMA CITY WHERE HIS FATHER WORKED AS A CAPTAIN OF A FISHING BOAT. AT LEAST 140 PANAMANIAN PLAYERS HAVE PLAYED PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL IN THE UNITED STATES, MORE THAN ANY OTHER CENTRAL AMERICAN COUNTRY. NOTABLE PLAYERS INCLUDE ROD CAREW, CARLOS LEE AND CARLOS RUIZ. AKA SANDMAN HEIGHT: 6-FT 2-IN / WEIGHT: 195 LBS / CAP: 7 3//SHOE: 10.5 FAMILIA SSSSSS MO'S WEIGHT IN BASEBALLS 624 MARIANO IS THE SECOND OF FOUR CHILDREN. HE HAS AN OLDER SISTER AND TWO YOUNGER BROTHERS. WIFE CLARA AND THREE BOYS, MARIANO JR., JAFET AND JAZIEL (MO HAS KNOWN CLARA SINCE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. THEY MARRIED ON NOVEMBER 9, 1991.) S=100 BASEBALLS "THAT BEACH AT LOW TIDE, THAT WAS OUR YANKEE STÁDIUM" FROM EARLY CHILDHOOD, RIVERA AND HIS FRIENDS PLAYED BASEBALL ON THE BEACH WITH WHATEVER COULD BE FOUND. THEY USED TENNIS BALLS, EGG-SHAPED RUBBER BALLS OR BALLS MADE FROM FISHING NETS. FOR BATS, THEY USED BROOMSTICK CHILDHOOD PLAYING DAYS IN PUERTO CAIMITO, PANAMA HANDLES OR BRANCHES FROM TREES IN THE MANGROVE SWAMPS. GLOVES WERE FASHIONED FROM EMPTY MILK CARTONS OR SPARE CARDBOARD AND, SOMETIMES, OLD CLOTHES. ACCORDING TO RIVERA, HIS FAMILY HOME WAS 50 FEET FROM THE OCEAN AT HIGH TIDE, WHICH IS CLOSER THAN A PITCHER'S RUBBER IS TO HOME PLATE. HE COULD EASILY LOOK OUTSIDE OF HIS WINDOW TO SEE IF ANYONE WAS THERE OR HEAR THE SOUNDS OF OTHER CHILDREN PLAYING. IF THAT WAS THE CASE, RIVERA WOULD BE OUT ON THE SAND AS FAST AS POSSIBLE. HOW TO/ CARDBOARD BASEBALL GLOVE BEFORE MAKING IT AS A PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL PLAYER SPORTING A LEATHER GLOVE, MARIANO RIVERA'S FIRST GLOVE WAS MADE OUT OF CARDBOARD. HE SAYS THAT IT WORKED PERFECTLY FOR CATCHING BASEBALLS, OR WHATEVER MATERIALS HE AND HIS FRIENDS USED AS A BALL THAT DAY.

BY THE TIME RIVERA'S CUTTER REACHES THE PLATE, IT'S MOVED LATERALLY UP TO EIGHT INCHES. THE MAJORITY OF THAT MOVEMENT HAPPENS WITHIN THE LAST 10 FEET OF THE BALL'S FLIGHT. AT THAT POINT, THE HUMAN EYE IS PHYSICALLY UNABLE TO SEE A BALL TRAVELLING THAT FAST. AT THIS POINT, THE HITTER IS GUESSING WHERE THE PITCH IS GOING, SO EVEN IF HE MAKES CONTACT, IT'S NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM TO GET THE BAT'S FOUR-INCH SWEET SPOT ON THE BALL. MORE PEOPLE HAVE WALKED ON THE MOON THAN HAVE SCORED AN EARNED RUN AGAINST MARIANO RIVERA IN THE POSTSEASON.
