A 13x All-Star, 5x World Series Champion, and World Series MVP; Mariano Rivera was the greatest relief pitcher of all time. Yes, that's my opinion. And, I'm a Mets fan. I have 100 per cent respect for the job Mariano did for the Yankees and the way he represented baseball, playing with heart and class. That's so rare, that mix of a great player and a great person. That's why it's exciting that he'll be coming to New Jersey to meet fans.
