What it's like to be Mariano Rivera

Mariano Rivera did not dream of being a baseball player. He wanted to play professional soccer. An ankle injury sidelined that dream. Although he began playing baseball, Mariano worried he would spend his life fishing with his father in Panama. Instead, a scout for the New York Yankees changed his life. In just a few years, Mariano went from poverty in Panama to winning World Series Titles. This is Marianos story.

Mariano Rivera no soñaba con ser jugador de béisbol. Quería jugar fútbol profesional. Una lesión en el tobillo frustró ese sueño. Aunque empezó a jugar béisbol, Mariano estaba preocupado. ¿Se pasaría la vida pescando con su padre en Panamá? Pero un cazador de talentos de los Yankees de Nueva York le cambió la vida. En el curso de unos pocos años, Mariano pasó de una vida de pobreza en Panamá a ganar Series Mundiales. Esta es su historia.
