"If I have to express myself with one word, what I can say from being a son of a captain of a fishing boat, to Cooperstown, only a ‘miracle,'" said Mariano Rivera in our Fri. interview, of his journey from Panama to the Hall of Fame. The game's greatest closer and first unanimous Hall electee said he's most proud of "what my parents did for me, how they raised me, and how I played the game of baseball. How I respect the game of baseball. How I give my best to the game of baseball."

Mariano Rivera said in our Cooperstown interview Fri. that he always felt comfortable with the pressure of being a closer. "When I was 6, 7 years old, I was doing that — not in that way, not in that platform, but in my own platform. It was huge in Panama for me, we were playing for 50 cents so we can win and go to the store and buy a Pepsi Cola and buy two pieces of cake and eat it with the boys. That was our prize. So I was accustomed to be in that position." Whether it was baseball or another sport, the new HoF inductee said he wanted to be the guy on the spot at the crucial last moment.

It's media session time for the 2019 Hall of Fame class in Cooperstown.

Mike Mussina said in our Cooperstown interview Fri. that when he got word in January of his election to the Hall of Fame, his initial thought was "they're giving me a courtesy call to say, ‘hey, listen, you missed by five votes'...they're just being nice to me because I was close." He said he "wasn't sitting at home with people videoing it, with the phone on the coffee table waiting for it to ring, it was nothing at all like that - I was completely surprised." Mussina was coaching a high school basketball practice when the call came and his celebration dinner with his son was "going to McDonald's and grabbing some burgers and nuggets and drinks (from the drive-through)."
