Mariano Rivera was born November 29, 1969 on the coast of the Panama Canal in Panama City, Canal
Mariano grew up working on his dads fishing boat throwing nets out there and reeling back in for hours everyday. We would work 6 days a week and up to 8-10 hours a day on this boat.
Mariano grew up in a poor part of Panama but in his free time him and his friends would always play baseball on the beach.
Fast forward 10 years later Mariano is now in the MLB and is one of the greatest closer's of all time. Its crazy to think from where he come from. From growing up in a poor town, to working for hours on his dads boat, to playing baseball on the beach, to the MLB.
