Mariano Rivera III is a pitcher for Iona College in New York. The son of the New York Yankee pitching legend, young Rivera tries to avoid comparisons with his father. He started concentrating on baseball late in high school, as the elder Rivera never forced his son to play baseball.
Rivera III is a starter versus a closer like his father; and his favorite pitch is a slider, where his father had a notorious cut fastball.
Rivera is currently a sophomore at Iona and has had mixed success this far.
