Product Description

Mariano Rivera nunca soñó en llegar a ser un atleta profesional. Él nunca coleccionó tarjetas de béisbol, ni jugó en Pequeñas Ligas ni vitoreó a su equipo en una Serie Mundial. Él tampoco oyó hablar de Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio o Mickey Mantle.

Pero un día, todo cambió.

De ser un niño que jugaba con sus amigos en Panamá hasta ser un deportista exitoso con los Yankees de Nueva York, la vida de Mariano se convirtió en algo grandioso que jamás él pensó. Cuando él se para en el montículo no oye a la multitud, sólo oye la voz del árbitro gritando: "¡Strike!". Es el compañero de juego en el que puedes confiar, aun cuando las bases están llenas en la parte baja de la novena entrada. Sea que lo conozcas como Mo o como el "Sandman", Mariano es El cerrador y esta es su historia.

Lleno de consejos para atletas jóvenes y anécdotas del equipo de los Yankees, El Cerrador: Edición Juvenil es una inspiradora historia de perseverancia, espíritu deportivo y dedicación que han definido la vida de una leyenda del béisbol.

Mariano Rivera never dreamed of becoming a professional athlete. He didn't grow up collecting baseball cards, playing Little League, or cheering on his home team at the World Series. He had never heard of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, or Mickey Mantle.

One day, that all changed.

From a childhood playing pickup games in Panama to an epic career with the New York Yankees, Mariano's rise to greatness has been anything but ordinary. He's the guy on the mound who doesn't hear the crowd, just the sound of the ump calling, Strike! The teammate you can rely on, even when the bases are loaded in the bottom of the ninth. Whether you know him as Mo or as the Sandman, Mariano is The Closer, and this is his story.

Full of tips for young athletes and tales from the Yankee clubhouse, The Closer: Young Readers Edition is an inspiring story of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication that have defined the life of a baseball legend.
