Mariano Rivera Makes a Glove out of cardboard.
I’ve been lucky enough to sit down and talk with so many of my heroes. But this conversation with Mariano Rivera, which took place several years ago at his home, might be my all-time favorite. It’s hard to top: one of the greatest pitchers in history tells you how, growing up in Panama, he used to make his baseball glove out of cardboard - and then he shows you how he did it.
I worked in a kitchen when I was growing up, 80-90 hours a week, at Camp Sussex. There’s a lot of opportunities like this. Is that work nothing?
