Great walk-off win for Nick Swisher and the Yankees today!
This leads me to some questions:
Who is one athlete that you believe is a great leader? Why do you think this athlete is so great?
Here's my answer:
In my opinion, Mariano Rivera is an outstanding leader. I feel fortunate just to be able to watch such a talented pitcher. He may be the greatest relief pitcher in the history of baseball. However, he also leads his teammates in word and deed. Young pitchers go to him in the bullpen and ask for advice. He speaks softly, but when he gets serious, everyone in the Yankees' locker room listens to him. Mariano Rivera is committed to his team and committed to performing his best at all times--he is a great leader.
What do you think?
