Change the Rolaids Relief Man Award to the Mariano Rivera Award

The Rolaids Relief Award is the Cy Young Award of relievers, given to the greatest reliever in each league in the MLB. Mariano Rivera, the greatest reliever in baseball history with a total of 652 saves, retired at the end of the 2013 season, leaving a profound hole in baseball. A class-act and the humblest athlete alive, just went out and got the job done, for his teammates and not for personal glory. The sure-fire Hall of Famer deserves the Rolaids award to be renamed in honor of him, one of the greats of our generation and the history of baseball. Although the award is sponsored by Rolaids, they too should recognize the greatness of this player and change the award's name, even if the award is called "The Mariano Rivera Award, sponsored by Rolaids"

To:
Change the Rolaids Relief Man Award to the Mariano Rivera Award

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      because I am a baseball fan, Yankee fan and grew up watching all of Mariano Rivera's career; the man was the best at what he did.

      Mariano Rivera is as dominant a relief pitcher as he is a respectable person. I'm not sure if Cy Young is truly the pinnacle of pitching, but I can't think of a better reliever ever. Get rid of the Rolaids sponsorship!

      Mo is not only the greatest closer of all time, but he's also a class act and a top-notch representative for MLB. If MLB wishes to keep Rolaids' sponsorship, name it "The Mariano Rivera Award, Sponsored by Rolaids".

      Rivera is the definition of relief pitching.
