I heard a stat the other day and it blew my mind:
In human history, more people have walked on the moon than have scored an earned run off of Mariano Rivera in the postseason.
Sounds crazy, right? But it’s true.
According to NASA, 12 people have had the privilege of walking on the moon.
According to Baseball Reference, 11 people have scored an earned run off of Playoff Mo.
Amazing. Simply amazing. And to be nominated into the baseball Hall of Fame unanimously. What a career and to be the first player ever unanimously voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame; what an achievement!
