Mariano Rivera Speaker Profile
Mariano Rivera Biography
The best relief pitcher of all-time from the New York Yankees, Mariano Rivera was born November 29, 1969 in Panama City, Panama. He throws and bats right-handed. Nicknamed Mo, Rivera originally began his Major League career as a starting pitcher in 1995, but it was after he was moved to the bullpen that he found success. After a breakout year in 1996 as a set-up man, he was converted to closer in 1997, a role he has maintained for the Yankees ever since. He has subsequently become one of the premier closers in the majors, winning the Rolaids Relief Man of the Year Award four times and setting multiple Major League records.
Many people within baseball argue that Rivera is the greatest postseason relief pitcher and the greatest closer in baseball history. Along with having the second-most career regular season saves in Major League history, Rivera is the Major League's all-time postseason leader in saves and ERA. In his career with the Yankees, Rivera has won four World Series titles and been elected an All-Star nine times.
