Via Matt Eisenberg, Mariano Rivera Jr. has committed to attend Quinnipiac in the fall and will attempt to make the baseball team as a walk on. Mo Jr. trying to walk on? Walk on water maybe.
Lame humor aside, you might remember that Senior and Junior visited the campus back in December. “My mind was already set then,” said Mo Jr. “I had to show [my father]. He liked some of the stuff and he fell in love with it, from security to the people to the faculty. He liked it; he liked it a lot.” According to the article, he owns a pretty standard fastball, slider, curveball, changeup repertoire, but not his father’s famed cutter. For shame. I’m setting the odds that the Yankees draft him at some point this summer at like, 3-2. Even that seems high.
