Synopsis

El lanzador de relevo mA¡s exitoso de todos los tiempos comparte su extraordinaria historia de supervivencia, amor y bA©isbol.Mariano Rivera, el hombre que intimidA³ a miles de bateadores con tan solo abrir la puerta del bullpen, comenzA³ su increA­ble viaje como el hijo de un pobre pescador panameA±o. Cuando primeramente los Yankees lo reclutaron, ni siquiera poseA­a su propio guante. A‰l pensA³ que podrA­a ser un buen mecA¡nico. Cuando lo descubrieron, nunca antes habA­a volado en un aviA³n, nunca habA­a oA­do hablar de Babe Ruth, no hablaba inglA©s, ni tampoco se imaginaba cA³mo era Tampa, la ciudad hacia donde iba para comenzar una carrera que lo convertirA­a en uno de los mA¡s icA³nicos del bA©isbol. Lo que sA­ sabA­a: que amaba a su familia y su entonces novia, Clara; que podA­a confiar en el SeA±or para guiarlo; y que podA­a lanzar una pelota exactamente donde A©l querA­a, todo el tiempo.Con sorprendente candor, Rivera relata la historia de los campeonatos, los jefes (incluyendo El Jefe), las rivalidades y las luchas de ser pelotero latino en los Estados Unidos, y cA³mo conservar los valores cristianos dentro del atletismo profesional. El trece veces pelatoro del Juego de Estrellas habla de su impulso de ganar; los secretos detrA¡s de su legendaria compostura; la historia de cA³mo descubriA³ su recta cortada; lo nunca antes contado sobre el lanzamiento de la novena entrada del sA©ptimo juego de la Serie Mundial de 2001; y por quA© el momento mA¡s bajo de su carrera se convirtiA³ en una de sus mA¡s grandes bendiciones.Cuando Rivera se retirA³, todo el mundo lo vio y aplaudiA³. En El cerrador, llegamos a una aAºn mayor apreciaciA³n de una leyenda construida desde cero.
