Mariano Rivera

SI Rivera CoverIt’s spring training time! A time when hope is alive. A time when it seems possible that the new drug testing policy in the MLB may actually work.

In the spirit of spring, here is a link to my favorite piece about my favorite pitcher by my favorite sportswriter in my favorite form of writing. (A translation for those readers who are not writers or sports fans – a piece about Mariano Rivera by Tom Verducci in long form narrative.)

One of the best parts of this piece is the part where Verducci writes about the mechanics of Rivera’s delivery and the “late life” of his pitch.
