New York, NY (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
GreyWingFinancial.com personal finance and lifestyle magazine for seniors today released their strong approval for the grace which Marino Rivera has demonstrated as he approaches his retirement from major league baseball.
According to a USA Today article by Jorge Ortiz, published June 13th 2013, Yankees-great closer Rivera has some skeptics in the crowd, people who are thinking that he might have a change of heart and delay his retirement. Ortiz reported that Rivera has denied any changes to his plans, speaking strongly about his arrangements to retire. Rivera is quoted in the article as saying, “There’s no ‘maybe.’ There’s no ‘in case this happens.’ This is definitive. It has been well thought-out, and I have put it in God’s hands.”
The above-mentioned article also reports that Rivera has been spending his final season expressing gratitude to the fans and employees of all the stadiums on the road, as he prepares to retire after his career of 19 years in the MLB. Ortiz stated that, while at the Oakland A’s stadium, Rivera posed as a deliveryman and brought a pizza to a mailroom employee who has been there for 25 years. The article quoted Rivera as saying, "She's a beloved woman. It's beautiful to share. I learned a lot from her about hard work. I'm enjoying my season. Whichever way it turns out, I want to enjoy my season and to thank everybody I can, the fans, everybody who knows baseball. That's what I want to do.'' Grey Wing Financial’s head writer said, “Riviera’s story is inspirational and even though he may not be old enough to be getting life insurance quotes to cover his burial cost, here at Grey Wing Financial we still consider him to be a retiree and deserving of some attention.”
GreyWingFinancial.com commended Rivera for being so down-to-earth, and genuinely grateful to those who have supported him and perhaps lent a hand in his success.
The lifestyle and finance magazine for seniors urged its readers to take a page out of Rivera’s book when preparing to retire. GreyWingFinancial.com is quoted as saying, “Rivera truly understands what it is to be grateful, and to recognize that there are people in your life who impact you in such incredible ways, ways that can really have an influence on your successes and triumphs. Many people think of retirement as ‘me’ time, time to focus on ‘my’ successes and ‘my’ accomplishments. I love that Rivera views it in a whole different light, making such an effort to honor those who have supported him in his career. You never know when it’s going to be too late to thank somebody. True, the global life expectancy is improving every year, but why wait? Retirement is a wonderful time to acknowledge those people who helped you get where you are today.”
Mariano Rivera has played 19 seasons in the major leagues as a relief pitcher and closer for the New York Yankees. He is the all-time leader in MLB saves as well as games finished. He has won numerous awards, including three Delivery Man of the Year awards and five American League Rolaids Relief Man awards.
