I don’t normally post links to stories unrelated to football and basketball here, but this is one worth sharing.
A few of you may remember Mariano Rivera’s son from his uneventful years at Iona Prep. He almost never pitched and served mostly as a pinch runner. Now, just four years later, he’s a serious pro prospect throwing in the low-to-mid-90s.
