Re: Former NY Yankee Marino Rivera

I heard a stat the other day and it blew my mind:

In human history, more people have walked on the moon than have scored an earned run off of Mariano Rivera in the postseason.

Sounds crazy, right? But it’s true.

According to NASA, 12 people have had the privilege of walking on the moon.

According to Baseball Reference, 11 people have scored an earned run off of Playoff Mo.

First ever Baseball Hall of Fame unanimous vote!

Even Babe Ruth didn’t have that honor...!

 

Mariano Rivera seems like a really nice guy.

I always enjoyed watching him pitch.

High Honor.
