One pitch. One pitcher. Dominant over a time period that is unheard of for a closer. I am of course speaking of Mariano ''Mo'' Rivera.
He walks to the mound and his small frame isn't very intimidating. It lulls even the best hitters into a false sense of security. But Mo has an ace up his sleeve that most pitchers would kill for.
I'd even go so far to say it is one of the top 10 or 15 best pitches in baseball history. These are just some of the reasons Mariano has been able to accomplish so much over his distinguished career.
Today, I'm going to break down some of the reasons he has been able to shine in the major leagues for so long with seemingly so little.
