#Fact
1 Has three sons with wife Clara: Mariano Jr., Jafet, and Jaziel.
2 Made the last pitch in the final game at Yankee Stadium in 2008.
3 He is the last active MLB player to wear the uniform number 42, which was retired throughout baseball in 1997 in honor of Jackie Robinson.
4 Made major league debut on 23 May 1995.
5 Pitcher with the New York Yankees, 1995 - present.
6 Has only blown one save in his career in the world series which was against the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2001.
7 On the 1997 American League Division Series, the Yankees were leading 2-1 against the Cleveland Indians with 5 outs away in the 8th inning to go to the ALCS. Sandy Alomar Jr. hit the tying home run off of his fast ball and the Indians won that game 3-2. The Yankees got eliminated the game after.
8 1999 World Series MVP with three saves.
9 He has blown 2 saves against the Boston Red Sox which made them overcome a 3-0 deficit to win the 2004 ALCS.
10 Considered one of the best relievers in Major League history and a crucial component on the Yankees championship teams, Mariano Rivera was almost a Seattle Mariner. In early 1996 with Derek Jeter struggling at shortstop, Rivera, who had an unimpressive 5.51 ERA the year before, was almost traded to the Seattle Mariners in exchange for Felix Fermin. Fermin was a light-hitting shortstop who was released by the Mariners later in the season and signed by the Yankees, only to be cut two weeks later. This, without a doubt, would have been one of the worst trades in Major League history. Not only would the Yankees have given the Mariners a Hall of Famer in Rivera but it also may have affected the development of Jeter, who would have been demoted to the minor leagues.
11 2003 American League Championship Series MVP.
12 New York Yankees All-Time Saves Leader (412).
