He’s a Hall of Famer in every possible way—and Playing with Purpose: Mariano Rivera is an easy-to-read, color-illustrated biography of the baseball’s all-time saves leader. What’s really cool is that when his storied career with the New York Yankees ends, Mariano Rivera plans to save souls in the ministry! Part of Barbour’s exciting “Playing with Purpose” series, this account covers Mariano Rivera’s life from his earliest days in Panama to his multiple World Series appearances and titles (even the 1999 MVP award), all the way through the 2012 Major League season. It’s a story of sports and faith for all ages.
