The greatest closer the game has ever seen, Mariano Rivera, is set to pen his autobiography.
As confirmed by Hardball Talk publishing house Little, Brown and Co. announced it will publish ‘The Closer’ next spring the autobiographical tale of Mariano Rivera.
Rivera announced earlier this season that this year would be his last, so it’s only fitting that a book would be in the works. Rivera stated:
“Now is the time for me to finally tell my full story, of where I came from and what my game, my family, and my faith have meant to me every day.”
Hopefully Rivera will open up a side to him we’ve yet to see and we’ll get a more intimate portrayal of just how his rise to fame came to be.
