|This edition of the adult memoir by a beloved New York Yankee chronicles his childhood in Panama to his epic Major League Baseball career. Full of tips for young athletes and tales from the Yankee clubhouse, this is the inspiring story of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication that have defined the life of a baseball legend.|
From the Publisher:
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 13-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.
