Mariano Rivera Poster by Bill Lopa
Mariano Rivera is arguably the greatest relief pitcher in the history of baseball. His dominance and ability to lock down wins is legendary. Originally a starting pitcher, Rivera advanced his career to iconic status after making the transition to the bullpen. It was there that he perfected his cutter, a pitch that is both consistent and devastating. He spent the 1996 season setting up John Wetteland en route to capturing a World Series title. In 1997, with Wetteland's departure, Rivera became the full-time closer, a role he has owned ever since. The ten-time All-Star has been a key cog in five World Series Championships, was named MVP of both the 1999 World Series and the 2003 ALCS, and is currently second on the all-time career saves list, behind Trevor Hoffman.
There is an undeniable buzz around Bill Lopa. His formidable talent has already made a name for himself in the sports art and sport memorabilia arena. Bill's kinetic energy matches his impressionist style; this young artist is soon to a household name. This is a poster form of his painting of Mariano Rivera.
