'A Zen Master with a Mean Cutter': "The son of a fisherman, he grows up playing baseball on a beach in Panama with a milk carton for a glove, a stick for a bat and whatever was available for a ball; after being signed by a Yankees scout for $3,500, he does his apprenticeship in the minors, joins the Yankees and struggles at first, and then suddenly hits his stride." The Pulitzer-prize winning New York Times literary critic Michiko Kakutani closes the book on Mariano Rivera.
