Mariano Rivera is the greatest closer Major League Baseball has ever seen. Whether you are a Yankee fan or not, you must respect this humble master of his craft. Mariano Rivera is a follower of Christ and has a deep peace about God's will. I have seen him display confidence in God's will in many interviews over the years.
This week, while shagging balls before a game (something he has done his whole career in order to stay in shape and sharp), he twisted his knee and tore his ACL. Such an injury requires surgery and carries a six month recovery minimum. By most estimates of Rivera's intentions, he was going to retire after this season. It is probable this season is now done. Will he retire? Will this be the way the most prolific closer in baseball history goes out?
Mariano said he will take time to pray and consider what is next. Here is the interview with Rivera in Kansas City, after his injury was diagnosed. Again, you have to love Mariano Rivera.
