RIVERA: TOP CHRISTIAN

The christian website beliefnet.com has named Mariano Rivera as one of the "Top 12 Evangelical Christians in Sports Today."

Quoting the website:

"The popular Panamanian relief pitcher for the New York Yankees has helped the team win four World Series titles throughout his career. The devoutly Christian Rivera--who is often seen reading the Bible before and after games--finds inspiration in the verse Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." He even has it inscribed on his pitching glove. He is deeply involved in philanthropy and financed the building of a school and church in Panama City. Rivera has also gone public with his intention of becoming an evangelical minister at the end of his baseball career and is devoted to a variety of charities that focus on children, such as Casita Maria and former Yankees manager Joe Torre's Safe At Home Foundation."
