Life After Baseball

As the oldest player in the league, Rivera, 43 will trade in his mitt and baseball for a bible and pulpit to become an evangelical minister. “God has put me in a special place to talk about Him. It really has nothing to do with baseball. I’m here to talk about Him. Him alone,” Rivera said.
