Mariano Rivera in one more October showcase, 90 minute documentary, October 20, 2013 on Fox, 'Being Mariano Rivera,' an MLB production

10/11/13, "Mariano will still get an October showcase," Keith Groller,, Lehigh Valley

"The farewell tour of Mariano Rivera was certainly one of the biggest stories of the 2013 baseball season and his last game at Yankee Stadium featuring the special pitching change with Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte was the best moment of this year, and many other Yankee fans may feel a huge void this October with the team not making the playoffs.

However, there will be a special, 90-minute documentary on Mariano that will help ease the sting. It will debut on Fox on Oct. 20, (4:30pm) preceding what could be Game 7 of the ALCS.Rivera_and_Ortiz_lunch_MS It will be shown again two days later on Fox Sports 1.

It's called "Being: Mariano Rivera" and it's considered the definitive documentary on the final season of baseball's greatest relief pitcher. This is the documentary that had unprecedented access to Rivera starting with spring training and following him through the end of the season.


It figures to be a special presentation for baseball fans in general, Yankee fans in particular.
Highlights, as spelled out in a Fox Sports release, include:
**A late August fishing trip with Andy Pettitte, Mariano and Rivera's sons.
**A private lunch with David Ortiz where the two longtime rivals bury the hatchet.
**An Oldtimers Day encounter with Yogi Berra and Whitey Ford.
Rivera_and_Yogi**A special, inside look at how he felt during the Mariano Rivera Day festivities on the second last Sunday of the season.

This is a MLB production, and perhaps it will be turned into a DVD that will be on the Christmas list of lots of Yankee fans."
