Mariano Rivera says ( about Mariano Rivera ) : “An unfastened flap, an out-of-control rope, and seconds later, an uncle I love – the man who gently explained to me why my father is so strict and quick with the belt – seems about to die before my eyes,” "I wish I could do something. I wish I could do anything”. When the Coast Guard responded minutes later that morning, Miguel, a diabetic, was taken to the nearest hospital. But his injuries were too severe. A month later, Rivera’s uncle was dead. Hundreds attended his uncle’s funeral and burial in Puerto Caimito. “It is the first time I remember seeing my father cry,” Rivera says in his book. Yet, on the final day of mourning, the crew returned to the water, abiding by the mantra Rivera Palacios lived by as a sardine-boat captain: The nets don’t make money on the boat. They only make money in the water. In the years that followed, Rivera’s fishing’s influence on his future in baseball was crystallized. Coming home smelling of sardines every night, Rivera would make baseballs out of “fishing net wrapped with electrical tape,” according to NJ.com. If the makeshift balls weren’t available, he’d fling stones along the shore in between boating excursions, reported. Fishing was never meant to be Rivera’s life, a notion that was confirmed not just that early morning on the water but also one year later, when his father’s boat capsized. “A wave of water soaks me as I hang on to the side of the boat,” Rivera said in “The Closer”. “Do I want to drown to death, or get eaten by a shark? Nineteen years of age, and these are my options”.

Mariano Rivera says ( about Mariano Rivera ) : “An unfastened flap, an out-of-control rope, and seconds later, an uncle I love – the man who gently explained to me why my father is so strict and quick with the belt – seems about to die before my eyes,” "I wish I could do something. I wish I could do anything”. When the Coast Guard responded minutes later that morning, Miguel, a diabetic, was taken to the nearest hospital. But his injuries were too severe. A month later, Rivera’s uncle was dead. Hundreds attended his uncle’s funeral and burial in Puerto Caimito. “It is the first time I remember seeing my father cry,” Rivera says in his book. Yet, on the final day of mourning, the crew returned to the water, abiding by the mantra Rivera Palacios lived by as a sardine-boat captain: The nets don’t make money on the boat. They only make money in the water. In the years that followed, Rivera’s fishing’s influence on his future in baseball was crystallized. Coming home smelling of sardines every night, Rivera would make baseballs out of “fishing net wrapped with electrical tape,” according to NJ.com. If the makeshift balls weren’t available, he’d fling stones along the shore in between boating excursions, reported. Fishing was never meant to be Rivera’s life, a notion that was confirmed not just that early morning on the water but also one year later, when his father’s boat capsized. “A wave of water soaks me as I hang on to the side of the boat,” Rivera said in “The Closer”. “Do I want to drown to death, or get eaten by a shark? Nineteen years of age, and these are my options”. In this Sept. 12, 2013 photo, Mariano Rivera Palacios, father of New York Yankee pitcher Mariano Rivera, shows his son's baseball glove at his home where he has a wall filled with memorabilia from his son in Puerto Caimito, Panama. (AP Photo/Arnulfo Franco) That near-fatal excursion allowed him to play baseball even more, according to his autobiography. (He never got to mechanic school.) “On the boat I liked looking at all the different fish, but my father’s life was not for me,” Rivera told Sports Illustrated in 1997. “There’s no future in fishing”. Near the end of his son’s career, Rivera Palacios didn’t wonder what could have been if the fisherman’s son turned into the fisherman. Instead, he was just proud his fishing could be a minor detail for one of the most decorated pitchers ever. “Sometimes when I’m in Yankee Stadium, I’m watching from the stands and I say to myself: ‘Look where Mariano has come from — from Puerto Caimito, a town full of mud and a stinking fish meal plants,'" External link

Mariano Rivera says ( about Mariano Rivera ) : “An unfastened flap, an out-of-control rope, and seconds later, an uncle I love – the man who gently explained to me why my father is so strict and quick with the belt – seems about to die before my eyes,” "I wish I could do something. I wish I could do anything”. When the Coast Guard responded minutes later that morning, Miguel, a diabetic, was taken to the nearest hospital. But his injuries were too severe. A month later, Rivera’s uncle was dead. Hundreds attended his uncle’s funeral and burial in Puerto Caimito. “It is the first time I remember seeing my father cry,” Rivera says in his book. Yet, on the final day of mourning, the crew returned to the water, abiding by the mantra Rivera Palacios lived by as a sardine-boat captain: The nets don’t make money on the boat. They only make money in the water. In the years that followed, Rivera’s fishing’s influence on his future in baseball was crystallized. Coming home smelling of sardines every night, Rivera would make baseballs out of “fishing net wrapped with electrical tape,” according to NJ.com. If the makeshift balls weren’t available, he’d fling stones along the shore in between boating excursions, reported. Fishing was never meant to be Rivera’s life, a notion that was confirmed not just that early morning on the water but also one year later, when his father’s boat capsized. “A wave of water soaks me as I hang on to the side of the boat,” Rivera said in “The Closer”. “Do I want to drown to death, or get eaten by a shark? Nineteen years of age, and these are my options”. In this Sept. 12, 2013 photo, Mariano Rivera Palacios, father of New York Yankee pitcher Mariano Rivera, shows his son's baseball glove at his home where he has a wall filled with memorabilia from his son in Puerto Caimito, Panama. (AP Photo/Arnulfo Franco) That near-fatal excursion allowed him to play baseball even more, according to his autobiography. (He never got to mechanic school.) “On the boat I liked looking at all the different fish, but my father’s life was not for me,” Rivera told Sports Illustrated in 1997. “There’s no future in fishing”. Near the end of his son’s career, Rivera Palacios didn’t wonder what could have been if the fisherman’s son turned into the fisherman. Instead, he was just proud his fishing could be a minor detail for one of the most decorated pitchers ever. “Sometimes when I’m in Yankee Stadium, I’m watching from the stands and I say to myself: ‘Look where Mariano has come from — from Puerto Caimito, a town full of mud and a stinking fish meal plants,'" External link
