Congratulations to NY Yankees All-Time great reliever and multiple World Series Champion, Mariano Rivera on his induction to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY!
Mariano is the first player to be inducted unanimously on his first ballot.
“I still remember watching Mariano’s first start in Anaheim on TV, after a late-night illustration assignment, recalls artist Tony Capparelli. He had wonderful stuff, but at that moment, Mariano had yet to develop his deadly cutter. I knew however, that he was a player to be watched, despite his early trouble adjusting to major league baseball!”
